Young Ambassador Voting Enters Stretch Run

By Ellis Codjoe, November 29, 2019

If you’re out shopping in Oskaloosa this holiday weekend, you can vote for your favorite Main Street Young Ambassador.

34 area children between the ages of 3 to kindergarten are asking for your monetary votes to be Main Street’s Young Ambassador. Since October, local businesses have been sponsoring children by having a canister at their establishment with a nominee’s 3×5 photo. Dollars are considered votes and individuals can place any dollar amount in these canisters. The list of Young Ambassador candidates and their respective sponsoring business can be found here.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Seida Headstart Preschool. The balance will go towards expenses related to the Lighted Christmas Parade.

The Young Ambassador winners will be named at a gala held at Center Court at Penn Central Mall on December 2 starting at 6:00 PM. The 34 kids will be introduced and Santa will be attending as well.

The deadline to place your monetary votes is Monday, December 2 at 11:00 AM.
