The Young Ambassador contestants will all be introduced, and the winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 28 at 6:00 pm at a gala event at Penn Central Mall held for the winners, their family, and local media. All participants will receive the same great prizes and will have the opportunity to participate in the “Christmas Canvas” Lighted Christmas Parade, Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7 pm.
