4-H STATE PROJECT AMBASSADORS


The Utah 4-H State Project Ambassadors are the faces of our various program areas. Unlike our State 4-H Ambassadors that represent the program as a whole, State Project Ambassadors focus on one area within Utah 4-H. A 4-H State Project Ambassador is exemplary of Utah 4-H’s brightest and most talented youth. They are self-motivated and extremely passionate about their specific project areas and help provide leadership to and represent the youth involved in those projects.
