Youth Leadership Day

February 22, 2019

During the 8th annual American Royal Youth Leadership Day, the American Royal, in conjunction with the Western Farm Show, presented 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 were available to students throughout the day through activities in sessions and during their time at the trade show where they could meet others from across the region.
This newly revised program promoted careers in agriculture and allowed students to see the diversity of agriculture careers via speakers and the trade show.
