    What is a State 4-H Ambassador?

    A 4-H Ambassador is an official envoy, an authorized representative of our Utah 4-H program. A 4-H Ambassador is a self-motivated, enthusiastic leader who promotes 4-H using the skills, knowledge and leadership abilities acquired in 4-H with fellow members, area residents, community leaders, elected officials and non-4-H youth. A 4-H Ambassador serves to strengthen the 4-H program through public relations.

    Utah's State 4-H Ambassador Program

    Outstanding 4-Hers are chosen to represent Utah as State Ambassadors. Applications for State Ambassador are due every year on December 1st. State Ambassador applicants are requested periodically to send materials to update their file along with their Ambassador application. Your local county extension office will have updated applications and information on the State Ambassador program. Being a State Ambassador is an honor and privilege that only a few will receive. Being chosen as an Ambassador entails the acceptance of "great" responsibility and a total commitment to the Utah State 4-H Ambassador program. We need individuals who are not afraid of people or work.
