Vernon Winter Carnival is changing the age requirement for candidates interested in the Queen Silver Star program.
Chair Coleen Noel says it’s now open to young women age 15 to 19 who live in Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby and Armstrong.
The age limit was 16 to 18 before.
They have also extended the application date to June 22nd.
“The six month program provides opportunity and experience for each young lady to have the tools to present themselves as positive, confident role models and leaders not only within our community but wherever their lives may lead them,” says Noel.
From September to February, candidates attend classes on an average of 2-3 times a week learning topics such as: speech, automotive, self-defense, history of Vernon, financial planning, health and fitness, time management and business etiquette.
If you are interested, or have any questions, call the Vernon Winter Carnival office, 250-545-2236 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
