Eagan’s July 4th Funfest is seeking local Youth and Young Adults as candidates for our Funfest Ambassador Program. Our program offers male and female positions in three age categories: Junior 10-12 yrs, Teen 13-14 yrs and Youth 15-19 yrs. Would an academic scholarship advance your future school plans? Do you enjoy service to your community through volunteerism? If so, you may be an excellent representative of Eagan’s July 4th Funfest and our Eagan community.
Funfest Ambassadors network with neighboring communities through parades, festival attendance and coronations to strengthen community connections. Ambassadors serve host to the Brain Freeze ice cream eating contest with visiting neighbor ambassadors as one of their featured roles during our annual event, Eagan’s July 4th Funfest. The annual Funfest celebration is promoted by Ambassadors through appearances, volunteer tasks & button book sales.
Funfest Ambassadors take pride in our local community by serving as volunteers for many City functions. They volunteer annually for the Halloween Hodgepodge, Holz Farm Lone Oak Days, National Night Out and Eagan Market Fest. Ambassadors also serve roles during specialty events such as: Streets Alive, Dad & Daughter Dance and additional City or Park & Recreation events.
Eagan’s July 4th Funfest strives to build awareness to community organizations and civic duty. Social service projects are common practice for our Ambassador team. Involvement during the Open Door’s Empty Bowls fundraiser, Operation Christmas Child, Salvation Army Bell Ringing and Can Do Canines all foster the spirit of giving. We engaged in community volunteer projects working alongside the Eagan YMCA, serving Pumpkin Patch patrons at Think Mutual Bank, assisting residents during the Commons on Marice Sandwich Project and packing food at Feed My Starving Children. We are proud of the service details handled by our Funfest Ambassadors.
A panel of judges will make final Ambassador selections based on public presence and behind the scenes interaction. Social skills, communication, attitude and volunteerism all play a part in the judging process. Candidate peer interaction, an orderly neat appearance, a positive, friendly personality, poise, manners and commitment are also considered during the selection process. We encourage interested youth and young adults to become a candidate for the Funfest Ambassador Program.
