Each contestant will have an interview with the panel of judges. After the interviews the participants will introduce themselves in front of the audience, answer an impromptu question and deliver a 3-5-minute speech on the topic of their choice. An audience will be encouraged to listen to the impromptu speeches as well as the prepared speeches. The Ambassador and Runner-Ups will be announced at the conclusion of the event. This will allow them to enjoy a whole week leading up to and including a fun-filled weekend at the fair. There will be many events to participate in during the week and on fair weekend including riding in both Friday and Saturday parades, bringing greetings, handing out ribbons, greeting fair goers and over all enjoying the fair while representing the Floss Agricultural Society.
