Spokane Lilac Festival Seeks 2023 Royal Court Candidates

The Spokane Lilac Festival Association (SLFA) has opened applications for the 2023 Royalty Scholarship Training program.

High School Senior girls interested in joining the 2023 Royal Court are required to attend one of four orientation meetings with a parent or guardian to be eligible for the Spokane Lilac Festival Royalty Scholarship Program.

Orientation meetings:

  • Tuesday, November 1st 6pm – Moran Prairie Library – 6004 S. Regal St.
  • Wednesday, November 2nd 6pm – North Spokane Library – 44 E. Hawthorne Rd.
  • Sunday, November 6th 2pm – The HIVE – 2904 E. Sprague Ave.
  • Monday, November 7th 6pm – Spokane Valley Library – 12004 E. Main Ave.

The Royalty Scholarship and Training Program provides an opportunity for outstanding young women to be recognized for their achievements.  Every Spokane County high school is invited to present one senior girl for participation in the SLFA High School Royalty Scholarship and Training Program. Selection of the high school student is decided upon individually at each school.

Each candidate selected from her high school will participate in a five-week preparation course which supports character building and servant leadership with a strengthened focus on community service, integrity, and teamwork. The candidates will attend workshops in communication, personal and professional etiquette, resume development, interview skills, military history and protocol and self-defense.

Candidates will participate in community service activities such as Blessings Under the Bridge, Salvation Army, Clothe A Child and Second Harvest Food Bank

The training will culminate with individual candidate interviews before a panel of judges who have the very difficult task of determining the 7 members of the Spokane Lilac Festival Royal Court.  The Royal Court will continue training and preparation for coronation and the selection of the Spokane Lilac Festival Queen in March of 2023.

Interested candidates should consider attending if they:

  • Are interested in civic participation
  • Want to meet other student leaders
  • Want to network with local mentors
  • Want to learn more about the Spokane region
  • Want to give back
