New N.D. 4-H Ambassadors Selected

Four youth join the North Dakota 4-H Ambassadors.

Four youth have been selected to join the North Dakota 4-H Ambassador program.

The new team members, the county where they are enrolled in 4-H and where they attend school are:

  • Arianna Alvarez, Cass County, Kindred High School
  • Holly Johnson, Traill County, Hope High School
  • Marisa Smith, Sargent County, Britton-Hecla (S.D.) High School
  • Summer Steinwand, Dickey County, Edgeley High School

“The four new 4-H’ers who were selected for the ambassador program met or exceeded the score required to become a North Dakota state 4-H ambassador,” says Chauntel Bergstrom, North Dakota 4-H ambassador selections co-chair. “Some of the traits they were evaluated on included enthusiasm, leadership and dedication to the program. They also had an application judged. We were fortunate to have four new ambassadors become a part of our family.”

The North Dakota 4-H ambassadors are a group of young adults who are actively involved in 4-H. Ambassadors help plan and coordinate many activities that teach youth and adults topics such as leadership, team work and citizenship. The 4-H ambassadors specialize in planning and facilitating 4-H events such as the Extension Youth Conference, which is held in Fargo. They also help plan workshops, training sessions, and regional and state events.

“We strive for excellence and quality in the ambassador program, and we found it in these ambassador candidates,” says Aaron Subart, North Dakota 4-H ambassador selections co-chair. “They will all be welcomed with open hearts because we know that they are a great fit for this program.”

The ambassadors try to create events that are fun, educational and skill-building. They take an active role in volunteering in 4-H programs in every county.
