Holmes County Farm Bureau is creating a new way to connect with FFA members and bridge the gap between FFA and future opportunities in agriculture.
The Youth Ambassador program is open to any student who will be a senior in high school in fall 2018 and involved in FFA. The selected ambassador(s) will be appointed to a non-voting seat on the Holmes County Farm Bureau board of trustees. From that seat, the students will have an opportunity to engage with the board members and learn what Farm Bureau is about from a first-hand view.
The ambassador(s) will be asked to help plan a careers in ag day to be held in the fall of 2018, present to their FFA chapter about Farm Bureau and their experiences, present their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) to the Farm Bureau board to help them understand the FFA program better as well, and other activities and events as their schedule and interests allow, such as Ag Day at the Capital.
At the conclusion of the one year board seat, the ambassador(s) will be presented with a $500 scholarship as well as a one year membership in the Ohio Farm Bureau upon their 18th birthday.
Applications for the Youth Ambassador program are available upon request by emailing [email protected] or calling 330-263-7456 and are due by April 30, 2018. Complete program information is available here: ya-program-flyer
