PASADENA, Calif. (August 1, 2018) – Applications for the 2019 Tournament of Roses Royal Court are now available on the Tournament of Roses website. The Tournament of Roses invites young women to become a part of history, make lifelong friends, and become an inspiration for others.
Royal 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.
The 2019 Royal Court will attend nearly 100 community and media functions, serving as ambassadors of the Tournament of Roses, the Pasadena community, and the greater Los Angeles area.
All are encouraged to apply and participate in one of the initial interview sessions at Tournament House on Saturday, September 8 or Monday, September 10. Participants are selected based upon a combination of qualities, including public speaking ability, youth leadership, academic achievement, and community and school involvement.
All individuals who participate in the initial interview sessions will receive a ticket for two people to attend the Royal Ball, a semi-formal dance hosted by the Tournament of Roses at the Pasadena Convention Center on September 14.
The Royal Court application, eligibility requirements, and additional information can be found at: www.tournamentofroses.com.
The grand finale for the Royal Court will be riding on the Royal Court float in the 130th Rose Parade® presented by Honda and attending the 105th Rose Bowl Game® presented by Northwestern Mutual, both on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
