Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute

NAYI 2022

The Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI) is a weeklong experience for high school juniors and seniors from across Nebraska to learn more about career opportunities within agriculture. This conference features speakers, workshops, agricultural education, networking with peers and industry leaders, professional development, leadership experience, fun and new friends!


"NAYI was the best part of my summer. I enjoyed NAYI because it allowed me to reach out and meet new people who are the future of Nebraska. I appreciated the opportunity to meet new people, and the knowledge I gained from the speakers was terrific. I was pushed to go outside my comfort zone all week to grow as a member of society and as a person in agriculture. If you are considering going to NAYI, go. You won’t regret it. It was a fantastic week filled with fun and great people."

"Throughout my time on NAYC has been the best experience. I have not only had a lot of fun, but I have made lifelong connections with many passionate people in the agriculture industry. I am so excited to see what the future holds with these amazing leaders in both the agriculture industry and the great state of Nebraska. I am very thankful for my NAYI and NAYC experiences and I can’t wait to meet more eager people in the agriculture industry."

"At NAYI, I’ve been fortunate to experience uncanny support in pursuing my passion for agriculture. NAYI provided me with the extraordinary opportunity to cultivate lifelong connections with a multitude of fellow agricultural enthusiasts. NAYI has inspired me and many others to learn, grow, and create a network of like-minded individuals. I recommend NAYI to anyone who has the chance, you won’t want to miss it."
