The new team members, the county where they are enrolled in 4-H and the school they attend are: Brittany Barnhardt, Morton, Mandan High School, Mandan Mara Bornemann, Morton, New Salem-Almont High School, Center Victoria Christensen, Stutsman, Christensen Academy, Courtenay Mary Goroski, Richland, Wah- peton High School, Wahpeton Alyssa Kemp, Pembina, Cav- alier High School, Cavalier Eva Lahlum, LaMoure, home- schooled, Marion Nora Larson, Adams, Larson Homeschool, Lemmon, S.D. Seth Nelson, Wa.lsh, Park Riv- er High School, Park River The North Dakota State 4-H Ambassadors are a group of young adults from across the state who are actively involved in 4-H. They co- ordinate many activities that in- volve teaching youth and adults about topics such as leadership, team work and citizenship. They specialize in planning and FARGO, N.D. For Wesley Kemp of Cavalier, attending the 2015 National 4-H Conference in Chevy Chase, Md., was a life- changing experience. During the civic engagement conference, delegates ages 15 to 19 from throughout the U.S., U.S. territories and Canada participate in round-table discussions to help address a challenge that a federal agency poses. Then the youth make presentations to the agency. Kemp's round-table group tack- led how to inspire more youth to ex- plore careers in science, technolo- gy, engineering and math,,and pre- sented suggestions ,to. NASA, and the National Science Foundation. "I learned that everyone's voice is important and that I can succeed in presenting to any audience," he says. "Who could be more intimi- dating thjan NASA!" Conference delegates also attend workshops on improving their civic knowledge and skills, and visit their state's congressional delega- tion. The conference is one of several national and statewidc leadership development opportunities avail- able to North Dakota youth through 4-H, according to Rachellc Vcttem, leadership and volunteer develop- ment specialist with the North Dakota State University Exten- sion Service's Center for 4-H Youth Development. Others in- clude national programs such as National 4-H Congress and Citi- zenship Washington Focus, and statcwidc programs such as the Ex- tension Youth Conference and 4- H Ambassadors. Each year, four youth from North Dakota attend the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Ga. The 4-H'ers join more than 900 youth from across the U.S. in.workshops that help them improve their lead- ership skills. They also hear from nationally and internationally rec- ognized speakers, take part in ,a service learning project and expe- rience local culture through visits to locations .such as the Carter Presidential Library and the Atlanta Zoo. When Marit Wang of Devils Lake heard about the program from staff in NDSU Extension's Ramsey County office, she knew she wanted to be a delegate. "I make it my goal to take ad- vantage of every opportunity that is presented to me that would help me improve my youth leadership ability and fuel my passion for 4- H," she says. "I learned how big of an impact 4-H has oft my genera- tion and all of the positive oppor- tunities it presents youth around the world, no matter what your inter- ests and talents are." For 4-H volunteer Cindy Olson of Devils Lake, chaperoning the North Dakota delegates at the 2016 National 4-H Congress was an enlightening experience. "It was so high energy and pos- itive, you couldn't help but feel ex- cited and motivated about 4-H, the furore and the world in general," she says. After returning from these two programs, the delegates are re- quired to promote them across Photo: NDSU photo Above: Eight youth have joined the North Dakota 4-H Ambassadors team.

They strive to create events that are fun, educational and skill building, and promote self-improvement. They also are active volunteers for 4-H programs in every North Dakota county.

"We really ask them to step up," Vettem says. "I've never been dis- appointed. We have some amazing 4-H'ers in North.Dakota." Some youth apply to become 4- H Ambassadors. The Ambassadors, who are ages 16 to 22, plan and fa- cilitate 4-H activities and events, such as the Extension Youth Con- ference (EYC). The conference brings together youth from across the state to listen to speakers, par- ticipate in a service learning proj- ect and attend workshops on a va- riety of educational, topics. "Ambassadors do most of the planning for EYC," says 4-H youth development specialist and Am- bassadors co-adviser Sue Quamme. "They set it up. They decide what they want to do." Anne Brien of Rolla applied to become a 4-H Ambassador after at- tending her first EYC. "The 4-H program has helped me to grow so much as a person and has helped me to achieve a lot of my goals, so having the oppor- tunity to give back to 4-H was something that really drew me to the program," she says. Dalyce Leslie of Deering has at- tended the EYC "the past four years. "The best part is making new friends while building your lead- ership skills," she says. "I am now more confident in myself and my abilities. I would recommend this program to others because it is a great way to learn while being sup- ported by others around you." Citizenship Washington Focus, which gives youth ages 15 to 19 a behind-the-scenes look at the na- tion's capital, is another excellent leadership program for youth, ac- cording to Karla Meikle, an agent in NDSU Extension's Morton County office. She has accompa- nied youth on this opportunity. "The experience youth have at Citizenship Washington Focus en- courages civic responsibility, pro- vides an opportunity for discussion on current issues and is a great op- portunity to learn about govern- ment operations," Meikle says. These experiences also can lead to other opportunities, as past Na- tional 4-H Conference attendee Billie Lentz of Rolla discovered in July when she attended the Glob- al 4-H Network Summit in Ottawa, Canada. It encourages youth to net- work with industry leaders. "It was incredible to walk into a room with people of every back- ground and know that the thread that connected us all was 4-H," she says. "4-H has taught me skills that will last me a lifetime, including in- terview skills, professionalism, persistence, hard work, leader- ship, how to improve from failure, how to. step up to new challey ges and how to make a difference."
