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.

These are the Ambassador contestants in 2014.

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.
