ALBION – The Albion Strawberry Festival Committee has named the royalty and the winning poster for this year’s 29th annual festival, set for June 12-13.

To be considered for the royalty, Albion students had to write an essay about this year’s festival theme: “Hook, Line, and Strawberry!”

The royalty will be included in the parade at 10 a.m. on June 13 and will serve as ambassadors during the festival. The group includes, from left: Chase Froman, king; Kelsey Froman, princess; Vivian Rivers, queen; and William Barnosky, prince.

The festival committee also picked the winning student artwork that will be used on posters and other promotion materials.

Meghan Hurley holds the winning poster with the fishing and strawberry theme. Meghan and the top three poster artists will each receive $25 for their efforts.

Ashlee Bocach holds the second-place poster.

Elena Mergler holds the third-place poster design.
