On January 19, 2018, another Bismarck Homecoming Queen will be crowned.  The returning Homecoming Queen from last year will be Alyssa Sago escorted by Devon Warden.  The prince and princess contest this year was won by Klarissa Randazzo and Eli Skaggs.

We asked Klarissa and Eli about this experience and the excitement they are about to share.

To Klarissa:  Why do you like being crowned Homecoming Princess?

Answer: “I want to be like Snow White.  My dream is to look like Cinderella; blue, sparkly, like really sparkly.”

To Eli: Why do you like being crowned Homecoming Prince?
