NAYI Sponsors


As the Director of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, I would like to thank you for your interest in the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI). During NAYI 2020, we virtually hosted nearly 200 high school juniors and seniors who gained a better understanding of the agricultural industry, learned how to become better advocates for agriculture and developed ideas on what future career paths are available to them in the agricultural industry.

We hope that you will find the information on this page helpful as you consider potentially sponsoring this important agricultural youth education event.

Director, Nebraska Department of Agriculture
