The Vermont Maple Festival and VMSMA are looking for candidates for Vermont Maple Ambassadors to be chosen at the Vermont Maple Festival in St. Albans on April 25.

Two individuals, a male and a female, will be chosen to represent the Vermont Maple industry at functions throughout Vermont and New England for one year. A $2000 scholarship will be awarded to each recipient. This scholarship competition is open to any Vermont student ages 16-21. The candidate does not have to come from a sugaring family but they must have knowledge and experience about maple sugaring.

The Vermont Maple Ambassadors promote, publicize and educate the public with their maple knowledge. They take part in Fairs, Festivals, Field Days, and are in attendance at most significant events where maple is a part of the occasion. The Vermont Building at the Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, Massachusetts is one of the places where the Maple Ambassador will frequently play host and hostess.
