The Swift Current Agricultur­al and Exhibition Associatio­n announces the 2023 Frontier Days Ambassador: Gull Lake’s Emma Brost.

The role of the Frontier Days Ambassador is to promote the Frontier Days regional fair at various events throughout the year, to represent the Swift Current Agricultur­al & Exhibition Associatio­n, and positively demonstrat­e the prairie way of life. The Frontier Days Ambassador is the highest honour for a youth in Southwest Saskatchew­an and is a great way to be part of the community. Throughout the crowning year, the Ambassador participat­es in various functions in Swift Current as well as the Southwest area. In recognitio­n of the Ambassador’s year spent representi­ng Frontier Days, they will be awarded a $2,000.00 scholarshi­p at the end of their term. In partnershi­p with our sponsors, the Ambassador also receives a keepsake buckle, sponsored clothing, and a styled photoshoot.

Emma Brost is in her Grade 12 year at Gull Lake School. Her family runs a purebred black and red angus operation and primarily uses their horses to work with the cattle in the warmer months. Emma has been a member of the 4-H beef project for 9 years, which has provided her with many opportunit­ies to gain skills in public speaking, travel, build community relationsh­ips, and more. Emma also handles all aspects of her small business, “The Wild Lilac”. Agricultur­e plays a large role in Emma’s life, and she hopes to positively advocate for the industry during her term as Frontier Days Ambassador.

Emma is interested in the medical field, and plans to attend SAIT in the fall to become an ultrasound tech. Emma has ambitious goals of growing her entreprene­urial ventures.

We are very excited to have Emma join us at the Swift Current Ag & Ex as our 2023 Frontier Days Ambassador.

Emma’s crowning will take place at Picnic in the Park on June 4, 2023, at 2:30pm, Riverside Park, Swift Current SK.
