The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce has announced its final selection of junior court princesses for the 106th annual Rhododondren Festival.

Six girls, representing grades 1 through 5, were chosen from more than 75 applications received from students in both the Siuslaw and Mapleton school districts.

“We were so pleased to receive so many applications,” said Dee Osborne, junior court director. “The committee had some very difficult choices to make because we felt that all of the girls who applied deserved to be princesses. We know that our six finalists will be wonderful ambassadors for this year’s Rhody Festival and we hope that the experience will be a memorable one for them.”
