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.
