GMHS junior Lydia Beers was named the 15-16 Pennsylvania Grape Queen last night during the North East Community Fair at North East High School. Lydia is the first GM student to win this honor.

Lydia was one of four finalists to compete for the crown. Contestants were judged on their the grape industry and grape nutrition, public speaking, and personality and poise. Lydia received a monetary prize and will be in attendance at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in January 2015.

The Pennsylvania Grape Queen is a commodity queen recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and as such serves as an official representative of the Pennsylvania grape industry.

Lydia will be at the North East Community Fair tonight and at the Wine Fest tomorrow.
