Staff Get Hands-on Experience at Communication Camp

The 3rd Ag Comm Communication Camp wrapped up on May 23, 2014 with very positive comments from camp participants.

The livestock team from the May 2014 Communication Camp works on their project.One participant commented that Communication Camp "changed the way I think about communication." Others praised the opportunity to try new tools and learn things they can use in their work. Pembina County Extension agent, Samantha Lahman said, "This has probably been the best training I’ve been to for takeaways."

Communication Camp is a three-day intensive experience dealing with a broad range of communication planning and tools. Participants gain valuable communication skills, better understand communication and education in the digital age, and produce text, images and video that you can use in your educational programs.

At the most recent camp 4 teams worked to define their target audience, develop key messages, and create communication pieces, including a video (see videos created at Communication Camp).

Linda Kuster, Sue Millender and Jean Noland created content to help young mothers save money using coupons.

Sean Brotherson, Kim Bushaw and Cindy Selstedt created communication materials for Gearing Up for Kindergarten.

Craig Askim, Samantha Lahman and Cole Rupprecht created content to get ranchers to use Expected Progeny Differences when buying bulls.

Kim Braulick, Marietta Good and Mary Jean Hunter created content to get people to cook meat to a safe temperature when grilling.

The next Communication Camp will be offered this fall. You can see the full Communication Camp agenda and access many of the camp resources on our website.
