A queen will be crowned after Wheeling Park High School students display their exceptional talents on the performance stage.

The Wheeling Park Queen of Queens competition will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the school’s Phyllis A. Beneke Theater. School Queen of Queens Director Christie Curley said the competition consists of three categories. She said the “interview” category results in 15 percent of each contestants’ score, “poise and presentation” will result in 25 percent of the scoring, and the “talent” category will result in 60 percent of the contestants’ total.

“It’s always an exciting event,” Curley said. “The audience always leaves impressed by the singing, dancing, musicianship, poetry and monologue. These students work and practice so hard for Queen of Queens, and their performances are always thrilling.”

The winner of the event will represent the school in July during the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Queen of Queens competition. Judges will also select a first runner-up, second runner-up and Miss Congeniality.

Tickets for the Queen of Queens competition are available now at the school. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the event. The interview portion of the contest will take place prior to the performance portion of the show.
