(WALLACEBURG, ON) – The directors of the Wallaceburg Antique and Motor Boat Outing have announced the winners of the Youth Ambassador Program. Miria Pelletier and Brock Yazbeck, both grade 12 students at Wallaceburg District Secondary School, each receive a $1,500 bursary toward their post-secondary education.

Candidates were asked to enter an essay describing the virtues of volunteering and outlining the benefits it provides to Wallaceburg residents and to the volunteers themselves. The essays were reviewed by an independent selection committee and the choices forwarded to the directors.

Their awards will be presented to Pelletier and Yazbeck on August, 11, on the main stage during WAMBO.
