How do I become a Nevada State 4-H Ambassador?

Ambassador applicants are active 4-H members, 15 years of age as of January 1st, who enjoy leadership roles, and are ready to represent 4-H at a statewide level. After obtaining two years of 4-H experience, youth can apply to become an Ambassador through their county office. The applications are processed and each applicant is interviewed by 4-H staff and volunteers.

Once chosen as an Ambassador, youth attend a Leadership Conference to receive specialized training in leadership responsibilities and roles. Each Ambassador serves a two-year term, and fulfills a leadership duty at two or more 4-H events.
