Youth Leadership Day

February 21, 2020

During the 9th annual American Royal Youth Leadership Day, the American Royal, in conjunction with the Western Farm Show, presents career and professional development sessions during morning sessions.
Youth Leadership Day serves to educate students interested in agriculture leadership, career paths, and advocacy within the industry.

Networking opportunities are available to students throughout the morning through activities in sessions and during their time at the trade show where they can meet other students from across the region.
This newly revised program promotes careers in agriculture and allowed students to see the diversity of agriculture careers via speakers and the trade show.
