DATCP - WI Ag Youth Council

Wisconsin Agriculture Youth Council Members Announced

Congratulations to DAHS senior Jamison Meier!  She was selected to be a member of the first Wisconsin Agriculture Youth Council.  Earlier this summer, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) announced the creation of the Council as an effort to encourage young people to engage with state government and increase their awareness of how the state interacts with Wisconsin’s agriculture industry. Over the next year Jamison and other members will look at agricultural-related career opportunities, learn about state resources, be provided insight into policy development, and network across the industry.

DATCP Secretary-designee Randy Romanski announced the 15 members of the Wisconsin Agriculture Youth Council. Members will serve a one-year term, receiving a certificate of completion at the end of their service.

“Congratulations to the first members of the Wisconsin Agriculture Youth Council! These students are outstanding representatives of the future of Wisconsin agriculture, and their insights will be incredibly valuable to our department and the entire industry. We are excited to engage with these young people to promote agricultural career opportunities, share resources available for farmers, and discuss agricultural policy development.”
