The Sun Bowl Association is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 Sun Court.
Applications are available online at sunbowl.org or can be picked up at the SBA office, located at 4150 Pinnacle Street, Suite 100 in El Paso, Texas. The deadline to apply is Saturday, June 18, 2022 by 5 p.m. (MT). All interviews will be held on Saturday, July 9 beginning at 9 a.m. at the SBA offices.
The El Paso area will be represented by the city’s young women to serve as community ambassadors during all Sun Bowl events including the Sun Bowl Parade on Thanksgiving morning and the Tony the Tiger football game on December 30, 2022.
“The Sun Court has been an integral part of the Sun Bowl Association for over 85 years and they serve the purpose of being ambassadors for the Sun Bowl Association and the City of El Paso.,” Executive Director Bernie Olivas said. “We look forward to selecting the best possible candidates to fill the Sun Court and continuing this storied tradition.”
The Sun Court dates back to 1935 when organizers planned the event as a companion to the first Sun Bowl game. This is a great time for young women to promote their city and to volunteer as community ambassadors. Contestants are selected based on poise, personality, communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to demonstrate knowledge of El Paso and all Sun Bowl Association events. Participants must be full-time students at a college or university and in good academic standing.
