GUELPH/WELLINGTON – A member of Wellington 4-H has been selected as one of six ambassadors for the provincial organization. 

Colin Ormiston, member of Wellington 4-H for 10 years, will represent 4-H Ontario as an ambassador.

A press release explained the 4-H Ontario ambassador program provides youth with specialized training in leadership, citizenship, communications and public relations. 

“4-H Ontario Ambassadors will apply these advanced skills to recruit new 4-H participants and share the 4-H story,” the release stated. “The 2024 Ambassadors will attend 4-H Ontario events across the province and represent 4-H at community events to promote and advocate for the 4-H program.”

In his 10 years with Wellington 4-H, the release said Ormiston has completed 30 projects including beef, veterinary, cooking and engineering. 

He’s also participated in various provincial and national 4-H leadership camps and has held various leadership positions within his 4-H clubs. 

Most recently he was involved in the Beyond Borders program to prepare him for post-secondary school. 

“I have made so many friends through not only 4-H clubs but provincial camps. Some of the  people I have met are people I never would have met otherwise, and I am grateful every day that I met them,” Ormiston said. “

The weeks I've spent at 4-H provincial camps have been, truthfully, some of the best experiences of my life....and I wouldn't trade the memories I made attending them for anything. 4-H has given so much  to me and my life, and I am extremely passionate in trying to give to 4-H as much as it's given me.” 

4-H Ontario is a youth development organization with roots in rural Ontario.
