Ambassador candidates must be at least 16 years of age by July 1 st of the current year though age 21, be unmarried with
no children and live, work, volunteer, or worship in the Northfield School District #659.
Each Ambassador Candidate is sponsored by a local business with a $300 registration fee. The Ambassador Committee
can assist in finding sponsors if needed.
This is NOT A BEAUTY PAGAENT. This program revolves around volunteerism and developing leaders that will serve as
positive role models. In addition, the 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 spreading the word about the Defeat of Jesse James Days.
The Candidate Experience is very rewarding for everyone and lasts approximately 8 weeks. Candidates are offered
personal growth opportunities, fun social activities and develop new friendships in a non-competitive environment.
Qualified mentors will be available to help make every experience a positive one. The Candidate Experience was
designed to provide the best experience for everyone, whether they are selected as one of the three Ambassadors or
not. They will have a great time participating in many events, build on their interviewing and public speaking skills, and
learn a lot about the DJJD committee.
Every August, three young people are selected from a group of candidates to continue their professional development
as Ambassadors, representing Defeat of Jesse James Days and Northfield. (Note: One Ambassador will be chosen to represent DJJD/Northfield during the St Paul Winter Carnival and Minneapolis Aquatennial Ambassador Organization. This is the only difference between the selected Ambassadors, as all seen as equal during their year.)
