Students who are a sophomore, junior, senior, or grad student can be nominated by themselves, another student, or an Illinois State faculty or staff member. Only one nomination is needed. Those who believe they know someone who is a proud Redbird student and positive impact on campus can submit royalty nominations through the Homecoming royalty website by Thursday, September 26. Nominees can also have been a member of a past Illinois State Homecoming court as long as they were not selected as king or queen. Once nominated, those that accept the nomination will be asked to complete an application that highlights leadership, campus involvement, Redbird pride, and Illinois State values. From these applications, students will be selected to go through an in-person interview before the final selections are made for Homecoming court.

Homecoming court will be announced on Monday, October 21 at Kickoff with the Prez. Voting for Homecoming king and queen will open through following the announcement and close at noon on Friday, October 25. The king and queen will be crowned on Saturday, October 26 at Reggie’s Tailgate Tent.
