Young ladies who will be high school seniors or college freshmen in the fall of 2021, who are unmarried with parental/guardian consent, and are without children are eligible to apply. Debutantes compete for the title of Miss Debutante by selling ads for the Cotillion Souvenir Book. In addition, they participate in a variety of service projects. Debutantes are also encouraged to sell Cotillion Ball tickets so that family and friends can share their evening in the spotlight.
