Why do you want to be Czech Days Queen? Winning Czech Days Queen, to me, is a chance to show the pride of my Czech heritage, to honor my family, and to pay homage to my relatives who loved Czech Days just as much as I do.
What does Czech Days mean to you? Czech Days is a great way to celebrate the heritage that we are all so proud of with the young people in our lives that we hope will continue these wonderful traditions.
