There's still time to be a Teen Pollinator Ambassador through 4-H

If you are passionate about bees, butterflies, and the earth, and are interested in learning more then this is the place for you! The 4-H Teen Pollinator Ambassador Program is designed to promote 4-H, Pollinators, and Pollinator Habitats. Youth selected to serve as Ambassadors will receive training that will allow them to advocate for the program and teach out at the county, regional, and state level. 4-H Teen Pollinator Ambassadors will actively participate in the community through teaching roles in various settings and for a wide range of audiences including virtual activities, farmer's markets, county fairs, etc, and also serve as spokespersons for the 4-H Pollinator Project, helping to make the programs more visible. The 4-H Teen Pollinator Ambassador’s will further develop their skills in leadership, public presentation, citizenship, community service, public relations, and team building.

This opportunity is a 1-year commitment from now through June 2021 available for Blue Earth, Brown, Faribault, and Nicollet County youth in grades 6-12.

This summer participants started with virtual trainings. In-person trainings are planned for the Fall 2020. Those selected are expected to fully participate in all trainings as well as commit to teaching at various programs throughout the 4-H year.

Applications for Teen Ambassador are still being accepted. For more information read the Ambassador Description below or contact your local Extension Educator. To apply, fill out this form.
