Ag Youth Institute Deadline is April 15


The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) is currently accepting applications for its biggest youth outreach event — the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI). NAYI brings together hundreds of high school juniors and seniors for one week every year to learn more about Nebraska agriculture, network with ag leaders and discover the many careers available in agriculture. NAYI will be held July 10–14 at University of Nebraska–Lincoln East Campus and will feature speakers, workshops, agricultural education, networking with peers and industry leaders, professional development, leadership experience, fun and new friends! Students selected to attend NAYI do so free of charge due to generous donations from numerous agricultural businesses, commodity groups and industry organizations. Applications are at and must be submitted online by April 15. NDA selects students to attend NAYI based on their leadership skills, interests and involvement in agriculture.
