Come meet the young ladies running for Princess Canning 2014!

We’re down to two finalists and it’s going to be hard for the judges to choose! Kristen Bennett, 21, and Rachel Kluska, 18, will be interviewed by judges prior to the Princess tea and then each give a speech. Following their speeches, they will each be asked an impromptu question at the tea, the answers to which the judges will take into their consideration for picking the winner. Visitors are encouraged to come meet the candidates at the tea and show their support.
