N.D. Beef Ambassador applications due June 1

Are you interested and involved in advocating for North Dakota's beef industry? Do you want to network with others to share the beef story with consumers and decision-makers in our state and nation? If so, the North Dakota CattleWomen (NDCW) invites you to apply to become a North Dakota Beef Ambassador.

The Beef Ambassador program empowers young people to become beef industry advocates by learning and sharing positive nutritional, economic and environmental stewardship information related to beef consumption and the beef community with consumers. Beef Ambassadors learn how to effectively address issues and misconceptions, share industry practices and promote the versatile uses of beef.

Kathy Tokach of St. Anthony, the NDCW Beef Ambassador chairperson, said the organization is revamping the competition and will be selecting three individuals to serve on the 2016 North Dakota Beef Ambassador Team. To be eligible, students must have completed their freshman year of college (or be at least 19 years old, but not older than 24, by Jan. 1, 2016).

The North Dakota Beef Ambassador team will promote beef at college campuses, high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, Ag Day events, CattleWomen promotions and other activities in the state and their community. An individual winner from the North Dakota Beef Ambassador Team will also represent North Dakota in the National/Regional Beef Ambassador Contest in Spring 2016.

For an application and more information about the program requirements, contact Tokach at kattokach@gmail.com. Applications are due June 1.
