Montana Ambassador Program
Ambassadors are youth that are engaged in LEADERSHIP, SERVICE and PROMOTION of the Montana 4‐H Program. A 4‐H Ambassador is an official envoy, an authorized representative of our Montana 4‐H Program. A 4‐H Ambassador is a self‐ motivated, enthusiastic leader who promotes 4‐H using the skill, 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.
Outstanding 4‐H members are chosen from each county throughout the state. The county
4‐H Ambassadors will have opportunity to serve on both the district and state levels
as officers. Thus, opportunity to extend their service beyond the county level is
available. Application to the
ambassador program is made at the county level by completion of an application form and submitting to an interview by the County Council, or designated individuals.
