The Portland Rose Festival Court will soon be taking shape.

On Saturday 87 girls from the tri-county area applied to be on the Rose Festival Court at Providence Portland Medical Center.

Each applicant gave a one minute introduction and a one minute speech to a panel of community volunteers.

Junior and Senior girls from class 4A to 6A schools in the tri-county area who have an average GPA of 3.0 or higher, and 20 hours of verifiable community service were eligible.

42 girls qualified to compete for the final 15 princess positions.

Members of the Rose Festival Court receive a $3,500 scholarship generously provided by The Randall Group.

The first of the Rose Festival Princesses will be announced on March 1 at St. Mary’s Academy in Portland.

The entire court will be announced by March 18.

The 2016 Portland Rose Festival Queen will be crowned at the Queen’s Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union on Saturday, June 11, just before the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade.
