The National Jersey Queen Scholarship Fund was established in 2005 by Jersey dairy women interested in expanding travel and educational opportunities for the National Jersey Queen and members of the court.

It provided a $500 scholarship and all-expenses paid travel to three national Jersey events for 2010 National Jersey Queen, Lena Sweeney, Visalia, California. Scholarships of $300 and $200, respectively, were also provided to the two alternate Queens: Tera Koebel, Three Oaks, Michigan and Amber Ettinger, Kinards, South Carolina.

The National Jersey Queen contest is held in conjunction with The All American Jersey Shows and Sales, scheduled for 5- 7 November in Louisville.

Over the two-day contest, the contestants complete a general dairy knowledge test, are interviewed by a panel of judges, and prepare a two-minute video presentation demonstrating their public speaking skills. The 2011 Queen and court will be announced the evening of 5 November, then formally introduced at the start of the National Jersey Jug Futurity, 6 November at 1:00 p.m. EST in Freedom Hall at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

Catalouges for The All American Jersey Sale and the 54th Pot O’Gold Sale, presented by Cow’s Match Jersey Blend, will be posted on the USJersey.com website.
