2018 Youth Agriculture Lifetime Leadership Tour

 The planning committee is busy planning our 4th Annual Youth Agricultural Lifetime Leadership (YALL)Tour in 2018!

The tour has been a tremendous success the past three years with 70+ youth participating. They have decided to open the application up state-wide to include all 4-H members throughout Texas an opportunity to participate. This year’s tour will be July 15-20, 2018. 

They will be touring South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley area, providing youth the opportunity to witness agriculture production and issues related to agriculture production including everything from immigration to hurricanes to fever ticks.  The tour will depart from the Kerr County Extension office in Kerrville on July 15th and return to the Kerr County Extension office on July 20th. The cost to the participants for the 6 days is $200 each with a $100 deposit submitted with the application. 4-H members who are high school sophomores through graduating seniors are eligible to apply. They are limited to 30 participants and will notify all applicants by July 2 by email as to if they have been selected.  

A brochure, application, and magazine article are published on the Travis County 4-H website under State Events for those interested in more information.  Please contact Mellanie if you have any questions at MLMickelson@ag.tamu.edu or 512-854-9600.
