Youth are given age-appropriate patterns to perform as part of the competition to win the chance to represent ABRA as an Ambassador. Each year two youth are awarded a College Scholarship and YES (Youth Education Support) Award. The official presentation of these awards is presented in a formal ceremony at the World Show.
