To apply, members must complete the online application and upload a letter of reference from a teacher, minister, employer, 4-H volunteer, etc. (reference letters from family members will not be accepted). Applicants must also participate in an interview with the Ambassador judge(s).
Ambassadors will be determined on the basis of their application, 4-H achievements, interview, and outside activities.
