Oregon 4-H Ambassadors
Challenge yourself to explore and build leadership skills! The Oregon 4-H Ambassador program has two levels: County and State. 4-H County Ambassadors are outstanding 8th-12th grade members. Please contact your local 4-H program for more information including requirements and job responsibilities.
The State 4-H State Ambassador team is a group of 10-20 outstanding Oregon 4-H youth. 4-H youth in the 9th-12th grades who are interested in rewarding experiences and opportunities to develop their leadership skills can apply.
Ambassador Applications are due in the State 4-H Office by March 1. Check with your county Extension office for their submission requirements. Some counties will require you to turn applications into their county office. Other counties may request you to submit your application online. Applicants are interviewed at 4-H Summer Conference in June and the selection is announced.
For more information on the State Ambassador program, please review these resources and contact Carolyn Ashton or Elizabeth Gangwer.
