Current Cumberland County 4-H Ambassadors Emily Hyson and Payton Wilford relinquished their titles during the Cumberland County 4-H Ambassador Contest ceremonies at the 4-H Center held on Saturday evening, January 21.

The program began at 6 p.m. when contestants highlighted their accomplishments and public speaking ability as they furnished the audience with insights into their 4-H activities and accomplishments. All contestants prepared and delivered a speech on “What 4-H Means to Me.”

Emma Cohen of Stow Creek and Jada Jacobson of Dividing Creek were crowned 2023 4-H Ambassadors. Jade Toler of Millville was selected as first runnerup.

To be eligible, contestants must be in grades 8-12 and actively enrolled in the Cumberland County 4-H program for at least one year. 4-H Ambassador contestants are recommended by their 4-H leader, by members of their club or a recommendation by 4-H Teen Council members. Contestants earn points on general appearance, poise, interview skills and personality. Public speaking ability and 4-H accomplishments also count heavily toward their total score.

“The two 4-H’ers selected as the Cumberland County 4-H Ambassadors will be busy hosting a variety of events and programs throughout the coming year,” says Donna Griebau, 4-H program assistant and Teen Council club leader.

The 4-H Ambassadors serve as official Fair hosts for activities during the week of the Cumberland County Fair. They also participate in many 4-H programs, county events, parades, and community events.
