For 2015 the court program had a new emphasis of leadership development, team building, communication and community service. Each Princess was required to complete a leadership academy that included mentoring opportunities and coaching in areas like public speaking, interviewing and professional dress. Each of the ladies was also expected to commit a minimum of 16 hours of community service at a local non-profit organization of their choosing. Each princess accrued points based on their community service hours, ticket sales and participation in events and activities. The court also competed for a college scholarship, provided by Chemeketa Community College.
