AGJA Ambassador Program

The AGJA created the Ambassador program to encourage and support youth development in the breed’s activities. The ambassador will represent the AGJA at Gelbvieh functions throughout the year, including shows at the local, regional, state and national level. This program is offered to any active AGJA Member between the ages of 8 and 21 as of January 1, 2023. AGJA member may hold the title of Ambassador once per age division, with a maximum of three years of eligibility. Justin received a belt buckle sponsored by Prairie Hills Gelbvieh.

Each year the candidates are judged on their notebook, an oral interview, a speech given at the AGJA Annual Meeting and overall conduct during the Junior Classic. A committee is appointed to conduct the interviews and select the AGJA Junior Ambassador at the annual junior national show.
