BALLSTON SPA — Saratoga County 4-H announces a new teen program to provide youth with skills in sciences, language arts, and creative thinking, all aligning with different aspects of animal industries and sciences.

The organization seeks dedicated teens looking to advance in the animal science field.

Meetings will be held once a month with opportunities to learn from professionals in the field and work on projects. Animal Ambassadors will complete one project in the course of a year, individually, as well as work as a team to prepare and run animal shows at the Saratoga County Fair. 

This program is designed to prepare teens for higher education and careers in the animal industries.  Applications are due by February 1, and are available on our website: ccesaratoga.org/4-h/animal-ambassadors. 

This spring, Saratoga County 4-H will be offering other Animal Science programs in addition to Animal Ambassadors.
