Kentucky 4-H Shooting Sports Teen Ambassador Board 


Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts: mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity. The Teen Ambassador Board fosters mastery by empowering members to research, develop, present and teach concepts related to shooting sports and natural resources, belonging by building relationships with other 4-H’ers from across the state with similar interests, independence by encouraging the development of youth lead committees, and generosity through the planning of, and participation in, regular service projects.


Applicants must:

  • Be between the 4-H age (age as of Jan. 1st of current year) of 14 to 17 at the time of application.
  • Be a Kentucky resident.
  • Be committed to accepting responsibility and following through on tasks.
  • Attend and participate in all board meetings, Shooting Sports Camp, and State Competition (see application for list of dates).
  • Be responsible for their own expenses and travel arrangements for and from board meetings and activities.
  • Serve a full one (1) year term, beginning at Teen Conference through the next year’s State Competition, and may not serve on any other state teen board while serving as an Ambassador.

Each district is allowed 2 representatives on the board for a total of 14 youth each year.
