The Ohio Pork Council is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2015-16 Ohio Pork Ambassador Team program.
The Ohio Pork Ambassador Team program (OPAT) serves as an opportunity for qualified youth to act as a voice for the Ohio Pork Industry. It is the goal of the program to educate ambassadors about the pork industry so that they may better share their own agricultural-based story, including their background and experiences. Team members will be involved in communicating with consumers on topics such as food safety, nutrition, and animal care practices of the pork industry. Promotion of Ohio’s pork industry shall be carried out through the development of skills in self-confidence, communication, leadership, and teamwork.
The deadline for submitting an OPAT application is July 6, 2015.
