GRAVETTE The Arkansas Cattlewomen’s Association announces its 2010 Arkansas Beef Ambassador Competition for youth between the ages of 9 and 20. There are three divisions: ages 9-12, ages 13-16 and ages 17-20.
“The Arkansas Beef Ambassador program strives to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers and youth about beef nutrition, food safety, the economic value of the beef industry and stewardship practices of the beef industry. Our goal is to utilize our beef ambassadors to tell the beef production story to consumers and youth through promotion, education, media and the online environment,” a spokesperson said.
