Meet our Queen’s Court


Join us as we introduce the 2018 De Soto Queen’s Court.

For over 70 years, the Hernando de Soto Historical Society has celebrated the talents of a select group of special young women, ages 18-24, from the community by naming them to the De Soto Queen’s Court, a scholarship program.

Candidates are recommended by the community and then the Hernando De Soto Historical Society makes its choices on the basis of character, appearance, scholastic ability, high morals, and personality. The De Soto Queen’s Court serves as good-will ambassadors for the Hernando De Soto Historical Society and Manatee County from the Festival season through the next year.
