There is no cost to register for the competition and there is a total limit of 20 contestants in the entire show.
Eric Connell is Chair of the Royalty Show and says the Ambassador competition has been around for 40 years because there is such a need for agricultural presence in the community.
A prize of 1,000 dollars will be going to the winner of the Ambassador competition. The second place winner in this category will win 300 dollars and 200 dollars will be going to third place. First place in the Junior Ambassador level will receive 125 dollars and second place will win 75 dollars. Competitors in the Little Sir Little Miss competition will all receive gift bags.
Connell says the Ambassador/Junior Ambassador positions are a public speaking role as they are prominent in the community.
Something new this year, the winner of the Ambassador competition will be taking over the Spencerville Fair twitter account.
