Two Youth Elected to NYAC at All-States Camp
Thirty-two youth from around the state traveled to Bailey, Colorado June 23-30 to participate in the 76th All-States Leadership Camp, joining with youth from South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana and Colorado. As part of the activities, campers had the opportunity to partner with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Influenza Division and investigate a simulated influenza outbreak. The campers learned about the importance of preventing illness through protective measures such as hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and vaccinations.
Two outstanding youth, Patrick Swift from Ellendale and Cole Musland from Jamestown, were selected by their peers to serve on the six member National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC). Swift and Musland join with Mitchell Farmer-Lies from Minnesota, Briana Green from Montana, and Bre Stafford and William Felzien of Colorado. As part of NYAC, these six young adults will represent the Education Program in Washington D.C. in September during the fly-in, in March at the NFU Convention in Massachusetts, and throughout the year as they plan next year’s All-States camp.
