The Defeat of Jesse James Days Ambassador Committee is seeking new ambassadors to reign over the 2013 DJJD Celebration. The Ambassador Coronation will be held on August 17, 2013 at the Northfield Middle School Auditorium. The Junior Coronation will be held August 10, 2013 at the Weitz Center for Creativity.
Ambassador scholarship candidates must be 17 years of age by July 15, 2013, be unmarried with no children and live or work within the Northfield School District. If chosen, they will receive a Scholarship of $2,000.
Junior ambassador candidates must be age 6-8 by August 10, 2013, and live or have parents who live or work within the Northfield School District. The candidates will spend time volunteering, getting to know the DJJD committee, become more proficient at public speaking and participating in many fun events while gaining new friends. If chosen, the DJJD Ambassadors will spend the next year visiting other communities throughout the state and meet hundreds of people through parades, coronations and other special events gaining valuable friendships, experience and making lifelong memories.
According to Ambassador Scholarship Program Chair Julie Eddy, “This is NOT a beauty pageant or a popularity contest. Our program revolves around volunteerism and developing leaders that will serve as positive role models and be ambassadors for the Defeat of Jesse James Days Celebration and Northfield.”
The DJJD Ambassador Scholarship Committee will host an informational meeting for all candidates at 6:30 P.M. Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the Northfield Library. Information is also available on our website www.djjd.org . For those unable to attend this meeting, you may contact Shelley Brady (952) 237-9281 or Julie Eddy (612) 986-9418.
