Calling All Champions of Change: Send Us Your Stories!

President Obama and I know that today’s young people are critical to winning America’s future. From passing on the long-held traditions and values of American agriculture, to helping Americans live healthier lives by supporting the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move’ initiative, 4-H and FFA members are truly making a difference.

This September, the White House will welcome 4-H and FFA members from around the country to Washington for a day of discussion on their work, and the future of American agriculture.

In addition, the White House will honor 12 Champions of Change- 4-H and FFA members who are helping America win the future with unique projects that move their communities forward.

I’m asking for your help to tell their stories. Get online today and nominate a 4-H or FFA member whose leadership makes them a “Champion of Change” for rural America.

Visit the White House website before August 3rd for more information and to tell us why your nominee should be recognized as a White House Champion of Change.

We look forward to welcoming the winners to the White House this fall, to hear their inspiring stories. Thanks for your help, and thank you for your ongoing commitment to rural America.

    If AT&T can provide useful financial data reports for their own CEO, program managers, etc. in this economy both by using and supporting other companies using Oracle’s Hyperion Solutions

    I am encouraged me to ask if the USDA investigate its use as well. I worked for the CEO of Oracle (my job was shipped outside of the USA) and the USEPA and am more than happy to share. If you already know the above tip, great! If not, spread the word just like bees carry pollen. ;-)

    No need to post my last reply. Pls send upward as appropriate.
    It’s all about promoting the ‘upward spiral’ not the ‘downward spiral’. Reference: “Growing The Positive Mind” by Dr. William K. Larkin (2008).
    I have an interview with AT&T tomorrow, however I know that my federal job will be offered to me when it is supposed to happen.

    Professionally and positively yours,

    This looks like a wonderful opportunity. I cannot find an age limit – is it current youth, alumni or adult volunteers? Thank you
