Miss Curwood Festival and the court member(s) are chosen to represent the Curwood Festival and the community at festivals in and around Shiawassee County as well as events and speaking engagements within the community, while the Curwood Festival Princess and her court member attend local parades and events. All winners have the primary responsibility of serving as royalty for the 43rd Annual Curwood Festival, which will be held June 4-7, 2020 in downtown Owosso.
  
Candidates for both titles will be judged on their communication skills, personalities, intelligence, poise, and overall enthusiasm for the Curwood Festival and our community. More details are available with the applications.

NEW EPISODE
Season 3 Episode 1: The Chair - 1.24.20

Two years ago Josh Strickland purchased an antique chair that purportedly spent decades in the old Owosso Post Office. Today a photo was shared in the Historic Owosso Facebook group. In the photo, a man is sitting in a similar chair. While the thread attempts to figure out who is pictured and where in Owosso the photo was taken, one user suggests that it may have been in the old post office.
