Russellville, AR— Pope County is proud to announce that Spencer Warren from Russellville, AR has been chosen to serve as a 2020 – 2021 Arkansas 4-H State Ambassador. To become a state ambassador, youth must serve as a Teen Star for at least one year. After serving as Teen Star for a year, youth are eligible to apply for State Ambassador. Typically applicants present an Arkansas 4-H promotional speech and interview in front of a panel of judges. Because of COVID-19, the format was slightly different. Applicants wrote a 500-word essay promoting 4-H, then recorded a video of themselves presenting the essay. The essays and speeches were reviewed by the Arkansas 4-H State Office and winners were selected.
State Ambassadors assist with 4-H promotion at the county and state level. Ambassadors represent 4-H at various events including fairs, banquets, community, and state events.
We are very proud of Spencer and her hard work.
To learn more about 4-H, contact the Pope County Cooperative Extension office at 479-968-7098.
