Ingalls Shipbuilding randomly selects a flower girl to participate in each ship christening. The flower girl’s duties include presenting flowers to the sponsor following the bottle break at the christening ceremony. All employees in good standing are eligible to enter their daughters or granddaughters who will be 7-9 years old on the date of the christening.
We are currently accepting entries for flower girl for the christening of the guided missile destroyer Frank E. Petersen Jr. (DDG 121) on Saturday, October 6. This ship has two sponsors, so two flower girls will be chosen for this christening. Deadline to submit is August 9 at 5 p.m.
Duplicate entries will not be accepted.
