Students encouraged to apply now to attend Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute

Nebraska’s number one industry is agriculture, and the premier event for high school students to learn about agriculture is the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI). NAYI brings together high school juniors and seniors from around the state to network with agricultural leaders and professionals as well as other students interested in agriculture.
During the Institute, delegates will learn more about Nebraska agriculture and agricultural careers available to them in the future. Delegate applications for this year’s NAYI are now available on the Nebraska Department of Agriculture’s (NDA) website. Current high school juniors and seniors interested in attending this summer’s program have until April 15 to apply. » Read more
