For all alumni whose children are worthy of a royal title, the 2021 Homecoming Committee is looking for a Homecoming Prince and Princess.

These mini-royalty are between the ages of 5-9, and have a parent, guardian, grandparent, aunt, or uncle who attended Illinois State (Normal) University.

The Prince and Princess take part in the Homecoming Parade and the family-friendly Redbird Welcome Tailgate Tent on October 16. They will also wave to the crowds at the Homecoming football game.

Nominations are available here. Nominations are due August 20. The selected Prince and Princess will be notified by September 15 to give families time to make appropriate travel arrangements.

The prince and princess will also receive four free tickets to the Homecoming football game, an Illinois State University gift basket, and an Illinois State University Homecoming 2021 shirt.
