Queen and Princesses: 12-14 years old
Little Sister: 9-11 years old

One Queen and 2 Princesses along with a “little Sister” have been selected to represent the Junior Orange Bowl and reign as the Goodwill Ambassadors at our festival events. The girls will embark on a year long journey which includes community service and leadership skills. These 4 young ladies will ride in their own Royal Court Float at the very magical Junior Orange Bowl Parade.

The selection of the Royal Court is based on several factors including personality, poise, charm and their commitment to our community. We are looking for young ladies that will be future leaders and role-models. Historically we have seen the personal growth in confidence, self- esteem, and speaking skills that a young contestant develops when she participates in our pageants. The Queen and Princesses reign over all the events of the Junior Orange Bowl International Youth Festival and serve as goodwill ambassadors to all the kids that participate. Additionally, the Queen, Princesses and Little sister as well as our new Miss Junior Orange Bowl title will have the great honor of riding on the Royal Court Float during the Annual Junior Orange Bowl Parade in front of thousands of spectators! Each participant will be invited to the Queen’s Ball at the Beautiful Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

The Jr Orange Bowl Committee is searching for wholesome, well-rounded, enthusiastic young ladies. This is not a beauty pageant.

**Selection is based on character, poise and a desired commitment to the community. Attire should be age appropriate and reflect a wholesome image. Contestants will be asked to say a short introduction as well as answer on-stage question and short personal interview
