Arkansas 4-H State Officers
Arkansas 4-H State Leadership
Arkansas 4-H Youth vote in seven of their peers each summer to represent Arkansas 4-H for the year. The officers are inducted each year at the annual Arkansas 4-H State O-Rama activities. The seven positions include President, First Vice-President, Delta District Vice-President, Ouachita District Vice-President, Ozark District Vice-President, Secretary, and Reporter.
District Vice-Presidents are elected during each corresponding 4-H District O-Ramas and the remaining positions are elected during Arkansas 4-H State O-Rama. Candidates campaign throughout the summer at events such as O-Rama and Teen Leader Conference.
Arkansas 4-H members interested in becoming a state officer must be a current Arkansas 4-H Ambassador, complete an application, and attend the State Officer Candidate Review held each spring. The review process allows for candidates to be put into scenarios that mimic situations that the 4-H State Officer Team encounters throughout the year. This includes storytelling, interview, impromptu speaking, and a formal meal.
