Nominees must have been active members of the community for at least five years. Younger princesses' qualifications can be partially determined by their parents' involvement.

When nominating, include your candidate's name, address, phone number/parents' phone number, age, how long they have lived in the area, and why you feel they deserve to be a member of the 2018 court. The deadline is Tuesday, May 15.
