ENTERTAINMENT

The Rose Festival Court is made of 15 outstanding young women who have been selected to represent their high schools and communities.

Next month, these young women will travel full-time 5 days a week for 5 weeks, visiting community events, business leaders, hospitals, senior living centers, youth organizations and civic groups.

The Rose Festival Court members receive one-on-one mentorship from top female executives, a $3,500 scholarship provided by The Randall Group valid for any accredited college, university or trade program and a complete wardrobe including shoes and accessories.

We, at The Skanner News, celebrate these young women and encourage them on their life journeys. To see the princesses and to read their bios, please click through the slideshow below.
