2019 Homecoming Court Nominations Now Open

Penn State Homecoming officially opened nominations Tuesday for its 2019 royalty courts.

First-round nominations for student, faculty, and alumni court members will remain open until April 19. (Don’t worry, there’s another nomination period in the fall.)

The student court is made up of only seniors, and each person needs only one nomination to be eligible for the court application process. Applications for the graduate court will remain open until August 26.

Homecoming named its first gender-neutral court last fall, breaking with the traditional king’s and queen’s courts in favor of a single unit. Two “Guide State Forward” honorees are now chosen to lead the court instead, dedicated to the Homecoming 2018 theme as a namesake.

Penn State’s 100th Homecoming celebration begins September 28 and culminates with the home football game against Purdue on Saturday, October 5.

To participate in either applying or nomination a senior you know who’s particularly ~state~, visit the Penn State Homecoming website.
