Teach Ag Ambassador Applications DUE THURSDAY!
Each year, the National Teach Ag Campaign selects an elite group of agricultural education majors to represent the profession and encourage others to teach agriculture. The application for the 2016-17 ambassador program is now available. Click here to apply.
The National Teach Ag Campaign is seeking the nation’s most outstanding agricultural education majors to represent the profession as National Teach Ag Ambassadors at the 2016 National FFA Convention career show, October 19 to 22 in Indianapolis, IN and throughout the year at the state level.
Ambassadors will be responsible for the logistical operations of the Teach Ag booth during FFA Convention; including booth set up and teardown, staffing the interactive activities, general booth maintenance and other Teach Ag related activities that occur during the week of National FFA Convention. After National FFA Convention, ambassadors will be responsible for hosting Teach Ag workshops throughout their states to promote the mission and goals of the National Teach Ag Campaign. In addition, ambassadors will also be required to communicate via social media and html emails about the National Teach Ag Campaign and their term as ambassadors to individuals interested in pursuing a career in teaching agriculture.
Selection for ambassadorship is a competitive process, and being selected means we believe you are one of the nation’s best and brightest future agriculture teachers. Final selections may also include a phone interview.
Ambassadors are responsible for arranging their own travel to and from the National FFA Convention. The National Teach Ag Campaign will reimburse up to $250 of your travel expenses. The National Teach Ag Campaign will provide accommodations and reimbursement for meals during your time in Indianapolis. Meal reimbursement is capped at $45/day.
Ambassadors are required to be in Indianapolis on Sunday, October 16 (time to be decided at a later date) for orientation and training. Ambassadors must also be available the rest of the week for booth set up, booth coverage and must stay through booth teardown and loading on Friday, October 21. There may be additional engagement opportunities during the week as well. Selected ambassadors must attend a mandatory orientation webinar in late summer (an exact time and date will be arranged with the selected ambassadors), along with an introductory training webinar prior to National FFA Convention. Anyone who does not attend these webinars or who cannot stay for the duration of the FFA convention cannot participate in the ambassador program.
