The Daffodil Royal Court is made up of 24 senior ladies from participating Pierce County High Schools. In addition to being awarded a scholarship, the princesses also gain many invaluable lessons and experiences throughout their year. They develop public speaking skills, tact and poise while also gaining self-confidence.
They benefit from learning how to organize their time to fit everything into an incredibly tight schedule. Social development and etiquette are also taught and emphasized. They learn social graces that will enable them to always feel comfortable, because they will know what to do and how to act in any social situation. They have the opportunity to meet and interact with people of all ages, economic levels, and different lifestyles. Most importantly, they build a lifetime of beautiful memories.
The Princesses attend out-of-town parades during the summer months. They will each have a turn to ride on the festival traveling float, and perhaps stay at a hotel overnight. These activities are done under the supervision of Festival chaperones.
