Crown comes with many duties

Justine Walker has already been busy in the few weeks since being crowned as the new Wellesley-North Easthope Fair Ambassador for 2010, including a visit to the recent Apple Butter and Cheese Festival.

To claim the title, the 17-year-old New Hamburg resident beat out three other competitors, taking over from last year’s winner, Kate Lindner.

“I feel pretty good about it, it’s exciting and I’m looking forward to my year,” Walker said eagerly.

To win her crown, the Grade 12 student from Waterloo-Oxford Secondary School was interviewed by a board of three judges, and on the night of the competition she also had to say a speech outlining why she was the best candidate for the position.

As ambassador, she has several responsibilities over the course of the year. She will be attending some of the fair board meetings in Wellesley, she gets to take part in events such as the Santa Claus parade, and she will be competing at the CNE next August for the provincial crown. She also is required to recruit new competitors for next year’s competition, and stay involved throughout the community.
