The Ambassadors Competition is the competitive opportunity for all youth (both male and female), ages 15 through 21 who are members of the DIFI Youth Group, to compete and be judged for this honor. The judging is based on the contestants' knowledge of their own country's culture, of other countries' cultures, of the A World A'Fair in general, and of their poise and ability to answer the judges' questions.

Immediately following the Competition is the Ball, the gala event where the winners--the Ambassadors of A World A'Fair--are announced: one male and one female. The Ball is an opportunity for all workers and friends of the International Festival to come together to celebrate before the festival's opening.

This pageant will be held at Creative Catering's Celebration Center on Poe Avenue, March 14. The judges for the pageant will be Carolyn Rice, Debbie Placke and Brad Kestner.

Junior Ambassadors of A World A'Fair, a boy and a girl, will be chosen on the Informal stage Friday, May 15, at 6:15.
