There are three candidates for this year’s Fourth of July royalty contest. They are Darian Meissner, Kayla Rooney, and Jennifer Ludwigsen.
Ludwigsen was born and raised in Wrangell, is a stay-at-home mother of three, and says she’s wanted to be a queen candidate since she was a little kid.

KSTK will bring you interviews with the other two candidates along with full coverage of this year’s celebration, coming soon.
