The Azalea Festival Youth Committee membership is made up of high school students, two adult advisors and one UNCW student who is a former AFYC member. This group needs to raise approximately $28,000 each year to produce the North Carolina Azalea Festival Scholarship Program as well as other youth activities during the Azalea Festival. They accomplish this through fundraising activities like car washes, yard sales, candy sales, raffle tickets, and advertising sales for the North Carolina Azalea Festival Scholarship.

If you would like to help, please contact the Azalea Festival office at 910-794-4650.

The North Carolina Azalea Festival Scholarship winner will receive the Beverly Anne Jurgensen Scholarship Award, equal to approximately one full year’s tuition at an in-state university.
