500 Festival Queen
The Ball State student earned a crown, a $2,500 scholarship, and a busy schedule of events.
Among more than 200 applicants, Allison Jacob was crowned this year's 500 Festival Queen at the Breakfast at the Brickyard on May 18. The three-month process whittled down those applicants to 32 princesses and a queen who serve as ambassadors of the 500 Festival and the Indianapolis 500. The young women selected represent 21 Indiana communities and nine Indiana colleges and universities.
