Did you know?

Each ambassador creates a scrapbook, logging their experiences from their year as a Dundalk Fair Ambassador. They showcase photos, brochures, funny memorabilia, event tickets and more. It is a great way for them to remember all the events they attended and all of the great people they met. It also lets others see a glimpse of their year!

The winning JR and SR ambassadors are given a scrapbook and creative supplies to make their book to showcase their journey.
