Applications for the 2016 Tournament of Roses Royal Court are now available online via the Tournament of Roses website. Young women from the Pasadena area who meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply and participate in one of the initial interview sessions on Sept. 12 and 15, 2015, at Tournament House.

To be eligible, an individual must be an unmarried female resident of the Pasadena Area Community College District; be a senior in high school or enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited school or college in the Pasadena Area Community College District; possess at least a 2.0 (“C”) cumulative, non-weighted grade point average; be at least 17 years of age by December 31, 2015, and not more than 21 years of age before January 5, 2016, with no children; complete an official online application and participate in one of the initial interview sessions.

In recent years, as many as 1,000 young women have participated in this Pasadena tradition, hoping to become an official ambassador for the Tournament of Roses and the city of Pasadena. 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 18.

The application and additional information can be found at: http://bit.ly/1MIFblu.

After the initial interview sessions, approximately 250 participants will be invited back for a second round of interviews. From that group, about 75 young women will be asked to participate in the third round of interviews. On September 30, approximately 25 of the candidates will be announced as finalists. The seven-member Royal Court will be announced on October 5 at Tournament House. The announcement and coronation of the Rose Queen is scheduled for the evening of October 22 at the Pasadena Convention Center. KTLA’s Rose Parade host and television personality, Stephanie Edwards, will emcee the event.

The grand finale for the Royal Court will be riding on a float in the 127th Rose Parade and attending the 102nd Rose Bowl Game® presented by Northwestern Mutual on New Year’s Day.
