Inspiring Young Women to Achieve Extraordinary Futures by providing Professional Development Opportunities

Each year give to the MAX is a great way to support organizations in your community. Supporting many programs each year in their efforts to help others. Please consider the Minneapolis Aquatennial Ambassador Organization (AAO) on Nov. 19, 2020!

The Minneapolis Aquatennial Ambassador Organization (AAO) is a Minnesota nonprofit and a Section 501(c)(3) public charity.  

The AAO focuses its efforts in three areas:

Community, Leadership, and Volunteerism.


Each year our Aquatennial Ambassadors visit hundreds of communities and festivals throughout Minnesota and across North America to build strong relationships and promote the Aquatennial festival and Minneapolis. The Ambassadors also volunteer time in service for other deserving organizations.

The AAO provides a candidate program for Minnesota-based community festival ambassadors to enhance their professional development and leadership skills.  At the end of the candidate program, three ambassadors are selected from the group of candidates to continue on and represent the AAO for one year.  The AAO generously provides Educational Scholarships to the Aquatennial Queen of the Lakes and Princesses, after the completion of their year of service. 

The AAO Mission is to "Inspire young women to achieve extraordinary futures, by providing professional development opportunities through networking and mentoring."
