About The Ambassador Program
The Brigden Fair Ambassador program was started in 1972 and has been changing and growing every year. Today, it is seen as an opportunity for youth to learn and grow within the community.
The Brigden Fair Ambassador doesn’t need to be an expert in griculture, live on a farm or have grown up in Brigden. You will only need to be between the ages of 17 and 24 (as of August 1, 2019) and have an eagerness to learn. This program is about learning, being seen as a leader in the community, taking on new challenges and let’s face it – having it on your resume doesn’t hurt either.
To learn more come to our information session in July 2019 (more details to come) at the Exhibition Hall of the Brigden Fairgrounds and learn more about this leadership opportunity.
More details will be available in the summer of 2019. The deadline to apply is early August and the Ambassador competition is held in late August.
