Letter from the 2015-2016 Junior Fair Ambassador, Hannah Holder
My experience being the Glencoe Junior Fair Ambassador was so amazing! Everyone who was supervising the event was so nice and it was a great way to meet new people. Before the fair all the contestants spent a day playing games and getting to know each other. We got to ride around Glencoe in a horse drawn wagon, have an opportunity to tour a farm and learn more about the rural area around us. When we met the judges we were asked to think of ideas for the next Glencoe fair. It was great to see that our opinions mattered and that we might start something new for the Glencoe Fair. We also played a game where we had to answer questions about ourselves so the judges could get to know us better. The night of the variety show was incredible. All the contestants got dressed up and we went on stage to introduce ourselves. I was a little nervous at first but everyone was really supportive. It was so amazing to see everyone in the audience looking up and smiling at us. When I found out I won I was so excited. It was such an honour to be Glencoe’s first ever Junior Fair Ambassador. On the day of the Glencoe Fair, there was more fun things to do. I got to ride a convertible in the parade and wave to everyone when I went by, hand out ribbons in the animal show and help out with the kids activities. My favourite part was was handing out ribbons because it was amazing to see how young the kids who were showing animals were and how much they knew about them. I think that the Jr Fair Ambassador is a great opportunity and everyone should take part in it. Especially if you think you might want to be the Glencoe Fair Ambassador when you're old enough. It's a wonderful introduction to what you have to go through to achieve that goal.
