CCS senior will attend Ag Youth Institute as delegate
The Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI) is a Nebraska tradition and a unique opportunity for students to increase their knowledge and appreciation of agriculture.
Nearly 200 Nebraska high school juniors and seniors will serve as delegates at this year’s 46th annual NAYI, July 10-14, in Lincoln. NAYI is sponsored in part by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA).
Among the delegates heading to Lincoln is CCS senior Lauren Prior.
“NAYI is a meaningful and memorable experience for students interested in agriculture,” said NDA Director Greg Ibach.
During the five-day Institute held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s East Campus, delegates participate in agriculture policy and group discussions, as well as career development activities.
Motivational speakers and a farm management program help delegates grow their leadership potential and strengthen their pride in Nebraska agriculture. The week also provides delegates an opportunity to network with industry leaders, top-notch speakers and ag representatives.
Since its start in 1971, NAYI has shared the importance of agriculture with nearly 6,000 youths from across the state.
Delegates apply for and are selected to attend the Institute free of charge due to donations from agricultural businesses, commodity groups and industry organizations.
