2017 Albany Tulip Queen & Court
Queen: Ashley Loggins
Court: Erin, Kelly Phillips, Julianna, and Amanda Volk
The Tulip Queen and Court serves as Albany’s Ambassadors for one full year of reign. They will spend that year involved in volunteer projects, including the Literacy Campaign, which strives to promote the value of reading to children. The Tulip Queen and Court have teamed up with the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region to create a trust fund for future Tulip Queens and Courts to award grants to local literacy organizations. Each Queen and Court develops initiatives to further their goals and attends numerous events throughout the year focusing on education and community awareness.
The nominees attend a series of interviews and finalists are announced early each May. The Queen is crowned in an elaborate coronation ceremony on Tulip Festival Saturday. She will receive a $5,000 scholarship, and each Court member $1,500.
