First-Ever Agriculture Youth Council Applications Available

Applications for the first Oklahoma Agriculture Youth Council are now available for students entering their senior year in the fall of 2019.



This council was created by Secretary of Agriculture Blayne Arthur to develop future agricultural leaders in Oklahoma through professional development, industry exposure and experiential learning.



“Agriculture needs young leaders who are enthusiastic about pursuing opportunities in the agriculture industry,” Sec. Arthur said. “These youth can bring new ideas to the agency regarding policy development, regulatory functions and communication with consumers.”



The council will be a year-long term, with approximately 8 sessions throughout the year. Activities include visits to Oklahoma agricultural companies and organizations, opportunities to learn about the legislative process and job shadows with industry professionals. In addition, students will participate in leadership and professional skill development activities and receive information regarding preparing for college.



Applicants must be going into their senior year of high school. Travel during the tours will be provided, but transportation to and from the State Capitol will be the responsibility of the student.



Applications and an overview of the council’s year are available on the homepage of the ODAFF website: www.ag.ok.gov. Applications are due April 1.
