The Miss Jackson County RoseQueen Scholarship Program provides the largest educational and financial scholarship opportunities for young women in Jackson.  In 1960 the pageant was designed to be a fundraiser for the festival, and with the help of members in the community, the pageant has evolved providing over $150,000.00 in educational scholarship opportunities and over $10,000.00 in financial support. The Miss Jackson County RoseQueen Scholarship Program contestants are supported by candidate sponsors who work with contestants to provide an opportunity for each young woman to express her personal and professional goals.

Celebrating 60 years, The Jackson County Rose Festival is the longest-running community event in Jackson. Run by a Volunteer board and supported by donations from local business, the festival presents the Jackson County Rose Parade, Miss Jackson County RoseQueen Scholarship Program and Miss Jackson County Teen USA Scholarship Program.
