Meet the members of the 2022 Rose Festival Court here!
The Rose Festival Court is comprised of up to 15 outstanding students chosen from Portland Metro-area high schools. The mission of the Rose Festival Court program is to provide scholarships for higher education, to promote community outreach and volunteerism, to offer networking and mentoring opportunities to outstanding young women in a program that perpetuates an appreciation for Rose Festival history and tradition.
Princess announcements take place daily in late February and March, in the days leading up to Spring Break. Following their selection, Court Members attend after-school and weekend training sessions covering topics including media training, networking, public speaking and more. Once travel begins, the Court travels full-time 5 days a week, visiting community events, business leaders, hospitals, senior living centers, youth organizations, civic groups and participating in the Rose Festival's parades and events!
Court Members receive one-on-one mentorship with top female executives from presenting sponsor Unitus Community Credit Union, a $3,500 scholarship provided by The Randall Group valid for any accredited college, university or trade program, a complete travel wardrobe including shoes and accessories, and a lifetime of enduring friendships with their Rose Festival Court sisters.
