Young Ambassador Winners Announced!

Young Ambassadors winners for 2022.

Young Ambassadors winners for 2022.

The Oskaloosa Main Street Young Ambassador Contest winners were announced in an enjoyable event at Penn Central Mall on Monday evening. In attendance were twenty-seven contestants and their families and friends. The Young Ambassador Contestants were introduced by Master of Ceremonies, Joe Milledge of KIIC Radio. Katie Trainer from Oskaloosa Early Childhood Center read a delightful Christmas story for the children. The winners were announced, and gifts were presented by Santa.

“The contest is open to children ages 3 to kindergarten. We had 27 children in the running this year,” shared Deb Bruxvoort, Oskaloosa Main Street/Mahaska Chamber. “The funds raised support the Oskaloosa Main Street Lighted Christmas Parade, but each year we also donate a portion of the proceeds to a local preschool. This year, that recipient is Little Creations Preschool.”

This year’s 2022 Young Ambassador Princess is Preslee Breuklander, daughter of Dave & Amy Breuklander. The Prince is Myles McGee, son of Megan & Erik McGee. Those participating in addition to our winners were Addilyn Dekleine, Anna Haage, Ariana Adams, Avery Wickenkamp, Brighton Brown, Gemma Stalling, Hattie Shelquist, Harmione Shrader, Jayla Stalling, Kenzlie Owens, Kyleena Raymie, Lany Ward, Lynley Rodriguez, Mia Weigle, Piper VanderBeek, Preslee Breuklander, Rose Miller, Sapphire Greenlee, Serenity Asher, Teagan Wiley, Anthony Weinreich, Jamari Kamerick, Jude Edgington, Lennon Fairchild, and Logan DeGroot.

All children received gifts donated by local merchants, including Mahaska Drug and Hy-Vee. All will be invited to help spread the magic of Christmas by riding on the Clow Train during the “Christmas Canvas” Lighted Christmas Parade this Saturday, December 3, at 7 pm.

Thank you to all contestants, all sponsors, Chamber Diplomats for collecting and tallying votes, and all those that helped at the event. Congratulations to the winners. See you Saturday!
