On Aug. 15, Kaitlin Francis was one of almost 70 youth from around the province competing for the title of CNE Ambassador of the Fairs for 2014. Representatives from fairs across Ontario have strived for the title for over 40 years.
The three-day competition includes an interview in front of a panel of judges, as well as taking part in seminars and tours, all of which lead up to the semi-finals on the Sunday morning. Kaitlin represented the Markham Fair with grace, elegance and poise throughout the weekend of the competition. During the semi-finals Kaitlin was named one the Top 7 semi-finalists and was able to present her prepared speech on linking the Urban and Rural communities together through questions and education.
Kaitlin has represented the Ambassador Committee and Markham Fair with honour. We are so proud of her for placing Top 7.
