Livestock Ambassadors

Program Information

Thank you for your interest in serving as a 2023-2024 Livestock Ambassador! The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter is excited to begin the selection process for the 2023 Program. It is the mission of our Facility to showcase Georgia’s agriculture and agribusiness while also promoting the agricultural achievements of Georgia’s young people. Using our mission we plan to showcase our youth, their achievements, and their talents here at the Georgia National Fairgrounds throughout the year at several of our different events. Throughout this process, each member will be asked to attend specific events here on-site, help out with livestock and equine shows, and commercial events that take place here, and serve as an advocate for the Fairgrounds as a whole.
