BARTON COUNTY, MO – Two teenagers from Barton County are part of something new from the University of Missouri Extension.

Ambassadors will also create and implement teen workshop programs and team building activities.

To know they are confident in working with other people in putting together something that at the state level that the other 4-H members throughout the state are gonna enjoy.” Says Elaine Davis, Barton County 4-H Youth Development Program Assistant.
The ambassadors first order of business will be working at the Missouri State Fair next month in Sedalia.
