Entries Being Accepted for Main Street Young Ambassador Contest


Oskaloosa Main Street is sharing the plans for the Main Street Young Ambassador Contest. One young man and one young lady will once again be chosen as Oskaloosa’s Young Ambassadors. Children from ages 3 to kindergarten are encouraged to enter.

The Young Ambassador contestants will all be introduced, and the winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 27 at 6:00 pm at a gala event at Penn Central Mall held for the winners, their families, and local media. All participants will receive the same great prizes and will have the opportunity to participate in the “Heart of Christmas” Lighted Christmas Parade, on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7 pm.

To enter submit the following to Oskaloosa Main Street, 222 1st Ave. East, Oskaloosa. (2nd floor of the MidWestOne Drive-thru building):  A photograph of your child no larger than 3×5, a $5 registration fee, the Child’s name, birthdate, parent’s name, address, phone, school attending, favorite activity, and what they want for Christmas. If you have a preference for a canister location, you must get permission from that business. Entries will be accepted until 3:00 pm, Friday, October 20.

Business sponsors are needed to display a secure bank that will be provided for collecting monetary votes for the candidates. Voting begins Monday, October 30, and ends the morning of November 27. The Young Ambassadors will be determined based on the amount of money they receive in their canisters. Proceeds from the event will enable a contribution to a local preschool and go towards Christmas parade expenses.  For more information call (641)672-2591.
