About Our Program
The Defeat of Jesse James Days Ambassador Scholarship Program is designed to promote growth and educational experiences for young adults through the promotion of the Defeat of Jesse James Days. We are dedicated to volunteerism and developing leaders who will serve as positive role models. We focus on the development of lifelong skills such as public speaking, interviews, poise, building self-confidence, and future careers. This is NOT a beauty pageant and NO talent is needed. We want all the candidates to have a valued experience with lots of fun and memories! Three equal Ambassadors will be selected to be a team throughout the next year along with two Junior Ambassadors. The ambassadors will spend the next year visiting many other communities and meeting hundreds of people through parades, coronations, and volunteering at other special events. One ambassador will have the opportunity to participate in the St. Paul Winter Carnival and Minneapolis Aquatennial programs.
