The Cranberry Court is an opportunity for Juniors from Bandon and Pacific High Schools to earn scholarships, gain life skills, and become representatives for the Bandon Cranberry Festival.   Throughout the year, the court will make many public appearances at events around Coos County.  They will also receive training to refine their skills in public speaking, talent, and pageantry, to ultimately compete to be crowned as Cranberry Queen at our coronation ceremony.
