The Fergus Agricultural Society strives to promote excellence and instil leadership, confidence and independence in our outgoing young men and women by hosting this program. The program provides contestants with leadership opportunities, communication and interview skills.

Open to a single person between the ages of 17 and 25 as of August 1, 2016.

The new Fair Ambassador will learn about and promote agriculture as he/she represents the Fergus Agricultural Society at various events in the Centre Wellington community for one year and at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) Ambassadors of the Fairs Competition in August 2017.

Each contestant will be required to give a two to three minute prepared speech, answer an impromptu question, prepare a poster display board about themselves and have a short interview with a panel judges. Participants must be single and non-parental. Each contestant will receive a memorable keepsake for participating.

Contestants must register by August 24, 2016.
