Introducing our 125th King, Queen and Court.

King: Matthew Bloom

Queen: Adelyn York

The Windber Area Museum (David Shaffer Homestead) sponsored the 125th King and Queen Scholarship Contest for the students of Windber Area High School from the graduating classes of 2022 and 2023. To become the honorary king and queen and receive a $500 scholarship, we asked the applicants to write a 1,000-word essay on what growing up in Windber has meant to them, why they wanted to be named the King or Queen, and what that title means to them. The winners of the essay will each receive a $500 scholarship after completing participation in the 125th Anniversary Parade.

Topics to Included:

• Your history – Tell us about yourself.

• What growing up in Windber has meant to you.

• Why you want to be the King or Queen.

• What being King or Queen means to you

The winners were judged and chosen by 125th Centennial Committee.
