Junior Orange Bowl announces 2012-13 Royal Court Search

The Junior Orange Bowl will host a night of glamour and royalty on Saturday, Nov. 17, as three young ladies will be crowned the 2012-13 Junior Orange Bowl Queen and Princesses.

The 2012-13 Royal Court will reign over all the events of the Junior Orange Bowl Festivities, participating in various award ceremonies and serving as diplomatic ambassadors to all the kids participating in the festival’s events.

Aside from their “Royal Court Duties,” it is a magical day for the queen and princesses when they ride on their own Royal Court Float during the much anticipated 64th Junior Orange Bowl Parade on Dec. 30. The Party continues at “The Queen’s Ball” hosted by the Junior Orange Bowl, which is a celebration honoring the Royal Court and all the girls who participated in the search.

This 62-year-old tradition is much more than a beauty pageant; girls are selected based on personality, poise, and a desire to be involved in community service.

“Our goal is to encourage these young ladies to be future leaders and role models in our community,” said Isa Goenaga, chair of the Junior Orange Bowl Royal Court Search Committee. “The event is a wonderful experience for all young girls. Not only do they gain self-esteem, confidence, and compassion, but they learn the importance of selflessly serving the community.”

The contestants must participate in a preliminary selection in order to advance to the final. The preliminaries will take place in Dade, Broward, and The Keys. Preliminary dates and times as well as registration information can be found on the Junior Orange Bowl website at www.jrorangebowl.org/royal-court-search.

The Junior Orange Bowl Festival is possible with the support of the City of Coral Gables, Miami Children’s Hospital, Orange Bowl Committee, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, Cultural Affairs Council, Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, Miami- Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.

The Junior Orange Bowl Committee Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that serves the community of South Florida and the youth of the world by providing opportunities for wholesome, competitive and multicultural experiences.
