PROGRAM DESCRIPTION & BENEFITS:
The Rose Festival Court is comprised of up to 15 outstanding young women who are selected from Portland-Metro area high schools. Beginning in May, Court Members travel through the end of the Festival in mid-June, visiting events, business and civic leaders, hospitals, senior living centers, youth organizations and other groups. Court Members also receive one-on-one mentoring from Unitus Community Credit Union female executives, a $3,500 scholarship provided by The Randall Group valid for any accredited college, university or trade program, a travel wardrobe, and a lifetime of enduring friendships with their Rose Festival Court sisters.

The Rose Festival Court experience is a unique and rewarding adventure. In partnership with the Portland Rose Festival Foundation and the school districts, we have arranged for most schools to freeze grades upon the start of the travel schedule. *However, each Court Member must work with her teachers and school to ensure that all requirements are completed for graduation.
