Beef Ambassador Competition & Advocacy Training

Monday, Nebraska Cattlemen’s NCW – Consumer Education and Promotion Committee announced that the 2024 Beef Ambassador Competition and Advocacy Training will take place on Wednesday, June 12 at 1:00 p.m. MT at the Lake McConaughy Visitors Center and Water Interpretive Center in Ogallala, Nebraska.

The Nebraska Beef Ambassador Contest and Beef Advocacy Training provides an opportunity for future beef industry leaders, ages fourteen to twenty-four years old, to sharpen their advocacy skills and strengthen their knowledge of the key issues facing the number one industry in Nebraska.

The Beef Ambassador Competition requires participants to address current issues facing the beef industry with both a written response and a mock media interview. The competition is separated into two divisions, senior and collegiate. Cash prizes will be awarded, and the two first-place division winners will receive a belt buckle. The first-place junior and collegiate winners will become official Nebraska Beef Ambassadors for a full year. They will work to educate consumers and students on the importance of beef. At the end of their one-year term, the collegiate Nebraska Beef Ambassador will be awarded a scholarship on behalf of the Nebraska Cattlemen Research and Education Foundation.

Registration and additional details can be found on the Nebraska Cattlemen website at For more information, please contact Gina Hudson at or at (402) 469-3157.
