Moser selected for youth ag institute


The Nebraska Department of Agriculture recently announced student delegates selected to attend this year’s Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute.

Alyssa Moser, of Clearwater, has been tabbed as one of the delegates.

In its 49th year, NAYI challenges its delegates to learn more about the agricultural industry and careers available to them in their future.

To slow the spread of COVID-19, this year’s Institute will be held virtually. NAYI is coordinated by NDA and the members of the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council.

“NAYI is the longest running program of its kind in the nation and is a popular event for our student delegates,” said NDA communications director and NAYC advisor Christin Kamm. “While the COVID-19 situation has kept us from hosting an in-person event this year, we are pleased to be able to still offer all of the typical learning aspects that our delegates are accustom to. Moving to a virtual format has also allowed us to provide additional opportunities for learning that we have not previously been able to offer before. This year’s theme is ‘Building Your Brand’ and we intend to help our delegates do just that.”

Since its inception, NAYI has educated more than 6,500 youth from around the state. NAYI is made possible through s donations from agricultural businesses, commodity groups and industry organizations.

This year’s virtual NAYI will be held July 6 through 10 and the 2020 delegates will receive additional information as the wee k approaches.

NAYI and additional youth learning opportunities throughout the year are organized by the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council. The 21 college students who serve on NAYC are chosen by NDA to share their passion and knowledge about agriculture with young people across Nebraska. During NAYI, NAYC members provide valuable insight and advice about agriculture, college coursework and career building.
