NDA announces new Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council members
Nebraska Department of Agriculture Director Greg Ibach is pleased to announce the selection of members of the 2009-2010 Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council.
The NAYC is comprised of college-age men and women who are responsible for coordinating numerous agricultural learning experiences for Nebraska youth including: visits to daycare centers, a farm tour for elementary aged urban youth and visits to high schools and FFA chapters. The primary focus of the NAYC is to coordinate the annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI), which will celebrate its 39th year in 2010.
"The NAYC members are chosen based on their passion for the agricultural industry in Nebraska," said Director Ibach. "This year's Council has already generated new thoughts and ideas on how best to share their excitement and knowledge of agriculture with other youth throughout the state."
