Ashley Wright, the 2006 Michigan Apple Queen, has been selected as a judge for the APC Crisco National Pie Championships in Celebration, Florida, on Friday, April 21.

Wright will be available for interviews on Michigan radio stations. She will be able to discuss the event itself, the Michigan apple industry, as well as why the American Pie Council feels she is qualified to judge apple pies. Please call the Michigan Apple Committee by 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 19 to arrange an interview.

The national event is covered by many media outlets, including the Food Network. Crisco is the main sponsor of the event, and the Michigan Apple Committee is a supporting sponsor.

The Michigan Apple Committee is a grower-funded nonprofit organization devoted to promotion, education and research activities to distinguish the Michigan apple and encourage its consumption by consumers in Michigan and around the world. For more information, visit www.MichiganApples.com.
