Ambassadors help plan many 4-H activities.

Three 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:

  • Marit Wang, Ramsey/Benson counties, Devils Lake High School
  • Astrid Axtman, Cass County, Davies High School, Fargo
  • Avery Breiland, Cass County, West Fargo High School

These new ambassadors were selected during the Extension Youth Conference held on the North Dakota State University campus. Election into the ambassador program is through a scoring system based on several events the youth participate in during the week. Candidates must meet and/or exceed the score required to become a North Dakota 4-H ambassador.

“All of the candidates were great people, and it was awesome to get to know them through the week and to see what skills they gained and learned through the election process,” says Kayla Ferring, ambassador elections co-chair.

“We had a busy week with seven wonderful candidates,” notes ambassador elections co-chair Holly Johnson. “Kayla and I had just as much fun as they did.”

The North Dakota 4-H Ambassadors are young adults who are actively involved in 4-H. They 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. They also help plan workshops, training sessions, and regional and state events.

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.
