This group will oversee everything from royalty nominations to the actual crowning of your King, Queen, and Court. With a dedicated group of people ready to focus on coronation, you can rest assured the event will be as special and memorable as it can be.
Homecoming Court Nominations and Voting
A few weeks before Homecoming, start accepting nominations for Homecoming Royalty. Most schools send out paper ballots to the entire student body, but another option is to take nominations via your school’s website or social media sites. However you choose to do it, be sure that every student has a chance to participate in the nominations.

Decide how many members you want on your Homecoming Court, and award the honors to the highest vote getters, with the top girl and guy as Homecoming King and Queen.

Not only will amazing accessories will highlight your court members, but they will also make memorable keepsakes your royalty will cherish.

- Tiaras for your Queen and her Court
- Crowns for your King and his Court
