                          When I was in Catholic grade school, a May Crowning was held yearly.     
                          Is a May Crowning a religious requirement in the Roman Catholic Church?

No it is not a requirement. But it is a very good custom.

                       A Protestant friend inquired: Is May the only month that a May Crowning can be held? Or can this event be held in any other month?

The Church dedicates each month of the year ( and each day of the week) to a special devotion. May is traditionally dedicated to Our Lady, The Blessed Virgin Mary. That is why special devotions, to her are done in May.

If it were held in June wouldn't it be called the June Crowning?

Or better- "Marian Crowning"

I think Catholics never need an excuse to march around with a statue of Our Lady wreathed in flowers. Cheesy

During the Holy Mass on May Crowning day,     
a wreath of flowers is placed on the statue of Mary.   
The act of crowning is rooted in the view of Mary as the Queen of Heaven.

'Ever since Blessed Alan de la Roche re-established this devotion the voice of the people, which is the voice of God, called it the Rosary. The word Rosary means "Crown of Roses" that is to say that every time people say the Rosary devoutly they place a crown of one hundred and fifty-three red roses and sixteen white roses upon the heads of Jesus and Mary. Being heavenly flowers these roses will never fade or lose their exquisite beauty.'

St. Louis Marie de Montfort
