NOTE: The 2013 Scholarship Program will include ONLY the scholarships awarded to the Carrousel Scholar, Runners-Up and York Scholarship Winner. The Marching Band Scholarship program will not take place in 2013.


In 1967, Carolinas’ Carrousel, Inc. instituted its Carrousel Queens Scholarship Program to recognize outstanding students in the region. Each area high school was invited to select a senior girl to represent the school and compete for the college scholarships offered by the Carolinas’ Carrousel.

That program continues today as the Carrousel Scholarship Program. Scholarships are awarded to the top Carrousel Scholar and four Runners-Up. The program grants the Bill and Mary Ann York Community Service Award and partners with some local colleges that offer scholarships to our Carrousel Representatives.

The 2012 Carrousel Representatives were selected by 58 area high schools. The 2012 Carrousel Scholarship Winners were announced on Wednesday evening, November 21, at the Charlotte Marriott City Center.

All of the Carrousel reps also participated in many exciting activities, culminating in the traditional ride in the Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade.

In 1998, the Marching Band Scholarship Program was added, offering scholarships to band members with matching awards to the student’s high school. The Robert L. Maddox Music Scholarship was established in 2000 to honor Dr. Maddox’s exemplary leadership in music education in Charlotte.

The 2012 Marching Band Scholarship Award winners were announced at the Carrousel Awards ceremony on November 21. Click the 2012 Carrousel Scholarship Winners link above to see the names of these scholarship winners.
