Nebraska 4-H is seeking three teens to lead the Ag Innovators Experience statewide. An additional 20+ teen facilitators are also needed to help present and promote the program. The challenge for 2022 is “Unlock Ag Innovations”. It will be a visually engaging, hands-on, and culturally relevant instructive escape room challenge for youth to learn about agricultural technologies.
If selected to be a teen on the State Leadership Team for Nebraska, youth will be expected to attend the Ag Innovators Experience Training in Champaign, Illinois February 4th – 6th, 2022. They will be traveling with a Nebraska Extension Educator & travel expenses will be covered. The team will bring the information back to Nebraska to train 20+ other teen leaders across the state to reach youth in their local communities with the Ag Innovators Experience activities.
Please pass the opportunity on to those youth in your counties who are interested in the opportunity to join the State Leadership Team or facilitate the program locally. The training to facilitate the program locally will be in Grand Island at Raising Nebraska on March 5th, 2022.
*This application is due December 31st with final selection for the State Leadership Team being made and notified on January 7th.
