All top-10 finishers take home a custom Rolex Girls Junior Championship plate. In addition, the champion has the honor of adding her name to the prestigious trophy base.
Kellee Booth swept the Rolex Girls Junior Championship from the start, with consecutive wins in 1992 and 1993. The tradition continued with Ariya Jutanugarn in 2011 and 2012.
Winning at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship is a family tradition for some: twin sisters Aree and Naree Song Wongluekiet claimed the championship title back-to-back (Aree in 1999 and Naree in 2000).
