NTFFRA Ambassador Program Committee and Royalty
We are excited to announce that the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association Ambassador Program has now begun its candidacy for the 2013/2014 year.
We have five young ladies, from three different North Thompson Valley communities – Barriere, Chu Chua and Clearwater, participating this year and we are looking forward to observing all the personal growth and self-confidence the girls are sure to gain throughout their candidacy.
The Ambassador Program is designed to maximize all of our Candidates potential to become well-rounded, confident and valuable members of both their communities and the valley.
Our Candidates will partake in many different curriculum’s that include proper etiquette, speech craft, agriculture lessons, equine awareness, horseback riding, sponsorship volunteer hours, fundraising and an in-depth history lesson of the historic North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, just to name a few.
During their candidacy these young ladies also gain plenty of hands-on experience interacting with the public, while learning how to become responsible for the personal representation they portray to others.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Candidate’s Banner Night and Apron Auction, April 25, 7:00 p.m. at the Barriere Lions Hall. This is a very elating evening for our new candidates as they, along with their Sponsors, will be introduced to the public and the young ladies will also be receiving their banners and tiaras.
Then, along with our current Royalty, they will participate in an exciting Apron Auction where all the girls get to model the aprons they have been so diligently creating while the attendees, who wish to, bid on the right to claim the apron of their choice.
All monies raised during this event will assist with the costs of the coaching, traveling and events they will be taking part in during candidacy.
The auction will be followed by some relaxing social time to enjoy refreshments and treats plus the opportunity to meet our new candidates and visit with our current Royalty.
As these young ladies excitedly embark on a life altering journey, geared towards education, personal growth and self-esteem, we sincerely hope to see you there.
