The Nebraska Department of Agriculture is pleased to announce the selection of 127 Nebraska high school juniors and seniors to attend the 38th annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute. NAYI will be held July 12 to 16 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.
"We continue to be encouraged about the level of interest in the agricultural industry from today's youth," said NDA Director Greg Ibach. "We are excited to present these youth with the opportunity to hear from an excellent line-up of speakers and numerous opportunities for the delegates to network with agricultural industry leaders."
"Keeping It Rural" has been chosen as the theme for this year's Institute. The delegates will experience five days of agriculture policy discussion, agricultural career exploration, and group discussions. Motivational speakers, a farm management program, and a media component will help the delegates to develop leadership potential and strengthen their pride in Nebraska's agricultural industry.
Since NAYI's beginning in 1971, more than 4,800 youth from across the state have participated in NAYI. The Institute is the longest-running agricultural youth institute of its kind in the nation.
NAYI is coordinated by the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council, comprised of 14 college-age men and women selected by NDA. Kyle Clymer, of David City, is the Agricultural Youth Coordinator for NDA and is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day planning of the Institute.
