Aquatennial Princesses

Aquatennial Princesses Jenna Forstner, Tzvetelina Pramatarov

St. Cloud State students Jenna Forstner of Gibbon and Tzvetelina Pramatarov of Anoka were crowned Minneapolis Aquatennial Princesses in July. Forstner, a junior in accounting, plans to go on to earn a master’s degree. Sophomore Pramatarov, mass communications, hopes to work in television broadcasting. She and her family moved to Anoka seven years ago from Bulgaria.

Each year around 50 candidates participate in the week-long Queen of the Lakes Scholarship Program. To become Queen of the Lakes or one of two Aquatennial Princesses, candidates are judged on poise, professionalism, public speaking ability, current and future goals, education and extracurricular activities. The two will receive educational scholarships and are traveling throughout the state and region as ambassadors for the festival and the city of Minneapolis for a year.
