2012 CNE Ambassador of the Fairs
The Canadian National Exhibition is proud to announce Linda Slits of the Milverton Agricultural Society as the winner of the 41st Ambassador of the Fairs Competition. More than 60 winners, aged 18 to 25, representing local fairs across Ontario competed over three days with the top seven semi-finalists competing in the finals on Sunday, August 19. The finals were held in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre at 2 p.m. Ambassador of the Fair Jocelyn Van Herk (2011) from the Mitchell and District Agricultural Society presented Linda with her award.
Finalists showcased their knowledge of Ontario agriculture, and were judged on poise, self-confidence and public speaking. As the Ambassador of the Fairs, Slits will participate in a series of official duties during the 18 day run of Canada’s largest fair, while simultaneously representing her individual fair and community.
