Montana 4-H Ambassador Officer Team
The Montana 4-H State Ambassador program provides opportunities for youth to represent 4-H through leadership and service at the state level.
State Ambassadors Officers are a select team of Montana 4-H Ambassadors that have demonstrated leadership in their county 4-H programs, and who are interested in developing and refining skills to teach other 4-H youth about leadership, promotion, and service.
Applications are due to the 4-H Center and should be postmarked by June 15. The ambassador officer selection process takes place during pre-congress events.
The advisor serves as a mentor and support for the outstanding 4-H youth that are selected each year as state ambassador officers.
The ideal advisor is a volunteer who is interested in working with highly motivated teen leaders for a term of 2-4 years.
If you are interested in attending statewide events and activities, and in helping guide a wonderful group of teens, then please consider this opportunity.
Montana 4-H is committed to ensuring that the Ambassador program is represented by an officer team made up of youth who are exceptional in their leadership and service skills, and who can professionally represent the entire Montana 4-H Youth Development Program.
Applicants will be scored on the application's written questions, interview, presentation, and provided recommendations.
Officer selection is conducted by a committee during Montana 4-H Congress. The interviews will not conflict with participation in Congress events. The selection committee is advised by the state 4-H office and may include the following 14 people:
- TWO retiring state officers
- ONE representative from State 4-H Council
- ONE representative from State Foundation
- ONE county agent or other representative as chosen by the State office.
- ONE representative from each of the (8) Montana 4-H Districts
- ONE Collegiate 4-H member
