4-H Ambassador- Elaine Jeffs

4-H Ontario has announced the selection of the six new Ambassadors who will represent the organization across the province in 2016.

Vicki Brisson, Laura DeKlein, Logan Emiry, Julie French, Sadie-Jane Hickson and Elaine Jeffs were chosen by a panel of judges at the 4-H Ontario head office in Rockwood. The judging panel comprised a 4-H Ontario volunteer and staff member, as well as a representative of GROWMARK, Inc., which sponsors the 4-H Ontario Ambassador program.

The 4-H Ontario Ambassador program provides youth with advanced level training in leadership, citizenship, communications and public relations. Ambassadors put their energy and 4-H experiences to work recruiting new members and sharing the 4-H story. They attend 4-H Ontario events across the province, as well as representing the organization at community events to promote the program.

“The 4-H Ontario Ambassadors are an integral part to the promotion of 4-H to current and potential volunteers, members and stakeholders by representing the program across the province,” says Marianne Fallis, Senior Manager, Programming, 4-H Ontario. “This year’s new team of Ambassadors will carry on the tradition of exceptional youth who are passionate about sharing the many experiences and opportunities the 4-H Ontario program has to offer.”
