About the Miss Charlevoix
Venetian Queen Competition

The young ladies that participate in the Miss Charlevoix Venetian Queen competition serve the Charlevoix community as its ambassadors.  The reigning queen, her court, and new candidates promote our beautiful town, our lakes and tourism while visiting surrounding Northern Michigan community events.

Each year the young women that enter the Miss Charlevoix Venetian Queen competition bring intelligence, integrity, and a love of community with them.  The coronation is a must see community event that is held in East Park at the Odmark Performance Pavilion on Venetian Thursday.

The Miss Charlevoix Venetian Queen competition is scholarship based.  The young women that participate in the competition are required to write an introduction letter, an essay, prepare and present one persuasive speech, and complete both panel and personal interview with judges that are selected from outside the Charlevoix Community.  Each candidate is judged completely on her own merit.

The scholarships provided are:
Venetian Queen: $3,000.00
First Runner Up: $1,000.00
Second Runner Up: $500.00
High Scholastic Achievement/Essay Winner: $500.00
Miss Congeniality: $250.00
Queen Scholarships are awarded at the end of her reign and are paid toward the school that she is attending.  The scholarship funds are provided by the Charlevoix Venetian Festival through generous donations.
