The directors of WAMBO released the names of the two winners of the Youth Ambassador Program.
Miria Pelletier and Brock Yazbeck, two Wallaceburg District Secondary School Grade 12 graduates, earned the ambassador positions.
Candidates were required to submit an essay describing the virtues of volunteering in the community and detailing the benefits it provides, both to the citizens of Wallaceburg and the applicant themselves.
The applications and essays were reviewed by an independent selection committee, unrelated to WAMBO’s Directors and Committee members.
The successful candidates each receive $1,500 towards their post-secondary educational costs.
Their awards will be presented on Aug. 11 on the main stage during WAMBO.
