About the Pork Ambassador Program

The Minnesota Pork Board’s Ambassador Program promotes leadership and communication skill development, and helps further an individual's agricultural knowledge through hands-on activities and social experiences.
Youth representing a county pork organization may participate in state supported events, including the Minnesota Agriculture Ambassador Institute, the Minnesota State Fair Oink Booth and Minnesota Pork Congress.
County ambassadors may earn a $500 scholarship from the Minnesota Pork Board for completing a prescribed list of tasks, which are identified in the Ambassador Handbook. Additionally, all county ambassadors are encouraged to compete for the state ambassador positions.
Successful state ambassadors receive additional scholarships: Minnesota Pork Ambassador, $1,500; First Runner-up, $750; and Second Runner-up, $500. Additional cash awards are presented for best essay and congeniality.
For more information on the Pork Ambassador Program, contact Minnesota Pork Board Director of Education Jill Resler.
