Now's the time for young ladies interested in being part of the 2013 Rose Festival court to apply.
Applications are now available online at http://www.rosefestival.org/
To be eligible, applicants must be a senior graduating June 2013 or a junior on track to graduate in 2014. Students also need to have at least a 3.0 GPA.
Only 15 girls are selected to be a part of the court. Once selected, each princess is awarded a $3,500 scholarship from Pacific Power.
But once a part of the court, the ladies are expected to keep a packed schedule. Beginning May 1, Court Members travel full-time six days a week for six weeks, visiting community events, business leaders, hospitals, senior living centers, youth organizations and civic groups.
The deadline to apply is Jan. 4, 2013.
