AMBASSADOR OF THE FAIR
RULES FOR THE AMBASSADOR OF THE FAIR

Stratford Wants You!!!
The Stratford & District Agricultural Society would be honoured to have you represent them as the
2011 Stratford Fall Fair Ambassador. This competition is open to young males and females
between the ages of 18 - 23 years at the C.N.E. in August 2011, who are located in Perth County.
This is an excellent opportunity for young adults to develop communication skills, presentation &
interview experience as well as developing a social network. This is also an outstanding opportunity
to get involved in your community and help reconnect the urban and rural communities.
Each contestant will meet with the judges and make a three minute speech on one of the following
topics:
1. Agriculture Now and Then
2. Some Aspects of the Fall Fair
3. Agricultural Societies
4. Your Choice with an Agricultural Theme

The Ambassador will receive a cash prize, gifts and two trips to Toronto; one in February 2012 for
the Agricultural Societies Convention when he or she will meet other Fall Fair Ambassadors, and the
second trip is to enter the „CNE Ambassador of the Fair‟ contest at the CNE. All other contestants will
receive a cash prize and gifts.

               MESSAGE FROM THE 2010 – 2011 - AMBASSADOR OF THE FAIR

As the 2010 – 2011 Stratford Fall Ambassador it is with great pleasure that I write this report. Being
the Ambassador of the Stratford Fall Fair has been very rewarding opportunity, one that I have
greatly cherished.

I would like to thank Alicia Horne for running the competition and encouraging me to compete,
Katharine Found for keeping me updated with all of the events to attend and making herself available
to answer all of my questions, as well as Heidi Danen for being my chaperone at the recent O.A.A.S.
convention in Toronto. I would also like to thank all the people that make up the Stratford
Agricultural Society for allowing me to represent them and particularly Pam Riehl for also guiding me
throughout this wonderful experience.

Again I would like to thank my friend Alicia Horne for recruiting me for the competition. Although
there were only thee competitors, each one brought something unique forward to present the
judges. The competition kicked off at The Parlour in Stratford on September 23rd, 2010. We were
interviewed by judges, Stephanie Robertson, Deb McBride and Jeremy Parkinson. During our
interviews, they asked us questions to get to know us better and our knowledge of agriculture. After
interviews and a very savory dinner, we proceeded to the Agriplex for the rest of the competition,
entertainment and a “Pie Auction”. The Ambassador competitors delivered their speeches with poise
to the judges and the audience in attendance.

The weekend of the Stratford Fair was an extremely busy one. I was very involved with the two
4-H Championship Shows (Perth and the Western Ontario Championship) that the Stratford Fall Fair
hosts each year. Between showing my own dairy calf, I had a full weekend handing out ribbons at
the 4-H Shows, helping out at the Baby Show, attending the Farm to You, the midway and handing
prizes to winners at the popular demo derby.

I was also pleased to participate in “Soup‟s On” presented by the Alzheimer Society of Perth County
and “Heartburn Day” which is a chili cook off sponsored by the Heart & Stroke Foundation. At both
of these events there were many great smells and tastes. Everyone from the Agricultural Society
that were attending both of these events were awesome to work with.

My favourite event that I have participated in so far as the Stratford Fall Fair Ambassador was the
O.A.A.S. convention in Toronto. Heidi Danen was my chaperone for this event and she was an
amazing person to get to know. There were several workshops for the ambassadors such as
domestic violence, dressing for your body type and getting to know your fellow ambassadors. I met
with my fellow District 8 Ambassadors and they were a great group, representing the District 8 Fairs
flawlessly. We had great entertainment both nights and the 3 day convention was packed with
a great variety of events to take part in.

Thus far, my experience as the 2010-2011 Stratford Fall Fair Ambassador has been very rewarding,
presenting many opportunities to represent my fair. I am looking forward to the District 8 Fair
Ambassador seminars March 19th , the District 8 Fair Ambassador competition and the CNE
ambassador competition in August

HOMECRAFT CONVENOR’S REPORT

Welcome to our 170th Annual Stratford and District Agricultural Fall Fair – one of the longest running
in Ontario. Quite a record! Participants are still enthuised about entering their best produce, baking,
handicrafts etc. We hope to continue for many more years.

The T                    Horsin‟ Around” which should lead to some interesting exhibits. It takes a lot
of people and co-operation to have a successful Fair and we are fortunate to have all the components
– creative exhibitors, hard-working Associate Directors, a supportive Board of Directors,
helpful staff and many volunteers who are asked to assist. The Fair would not be possible without
everyone participating.

Our many sponsors also deserve a lot of credit for their ongoing support. There is always a lot of
interest when the judging is completed to see who gets the red ribbon and often a monetary prize.
Sponsors keep up the interest!

We are hoping for another successful Fair in 2011 - come and enjoy!

Margaret Hislop
Homecraft Convenor.
