The interview for Star Awards will be the afternoon of June 25, 2019.

All awards will be presented at the 2018-19 Bosque County 4-H Achievement Banquet scheduled for August 9, 2019 at the Clifton Civic Center.
The Bosque County 4-H Ambassador Program aims to project a clear and accurate image of the Texas and Bosque County 4-H & Youth Development Program. More specifically, the purpose is to:
- Help older youths develop leadership and communication skills.
- Help the public understand the full scope of the 4-H program. Recruit new members from diverse backgrounds.
- To tell and show key audiences what the 4-H and Youth Development Program is and who it impacts, so that these audiences will understand the impact of 4-H on the lives of young people and will see how it addresses key youth issues in the community.
- To make families, youths, and communities more aware of 4-H and the benefits it offers.
This is a self-application process but requires an interview, with Bosque County 4-H youths being selected to serve as 4-H Ambassadors on an annual basis. This year we have nine youth who have been selected from the application process to serve as 4-H Ambassadors. Once selected each Ambassador must participate in a minimum of 80% of Ambassador sanctioned activities and County 4-H Competitions to be eligible to re-apply for Ambassador next year. Attendance will be kept for all activities.
