MORE ABOUT THE ROSE COURT

Rose Court members experience countless benefits; becoming part of an organization dedicated to hands-on volunteerism, discovering opportunities to connect with and give back to the local community, developing public speaking skills, and growing self-confidence. All are encouraged to apply and participate in one of the initial interview sessions at Tournament House in early September. Participants are selected based upon a combination of qualities, including public speaking ability, youth leadership, academic achievement, and community and school involvement.

The Rose Court attends nearly 100 community and media functions, serving as ambassadors of the Tournament of Roses, the Pasadena community, and the greater Los Angeles area. The grand finale for the Rose Court is riding on the Rose Court float in the Rose Parade® presented by Honda and attending the Rose Bowl Game both on New Year’s Day.
