The council will have eight to 12 members and is open to both urban and rural youth. No agriculture experience is required. Members will have the opportunity to learn more about agriculture, develop leadership skills, network with industry professionals, build their resumés, and meet new people. The term is one year and will involve two committee meetings per year, attendance at up to three events per year, and the sharing of ideas relevant to agriculture education and farm safety.

Applications can be made at the Ag for Life website. The application deadline is Sept. 17.
