Beef Ambassador Opportunity - DUE FEB 14TH!

The Utah Beef Ambassador program strives to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers about beef, including beef nutrition, food safety, the economic value of the beef industry, and stewardship practices of the beef industry.

For their efforts, winners will be awarded scholarships:

1st- $1000.00
2nd- $500.00
3rd- $500.00

Along with the scholarships, these 3 finalists will then be recognized as Utah Beef Ambassadors. As Ambassadors they will be asked to attend events to represent the Utah Beef Cattle Association around the state. The first place winner will also win a trip to attend the National Beef Ambassador Program competition in September 2015. 

This looks like a great scholarship opportunity and experience. The application and more information is available by emailing Rebecca Mills (rebecca.mills@usu.edu) or coming into the 4-H office. All youth between the ages of 17 and 20 are eligible.  There's also a brochure available HERE.

If you have any further questions please contact Nikki Weston at (208)847-5243 or montyweston@yahoo.com
