2017 Washington Wheat Ambassadors…
Two high school seniors have been selected to represent Washington wheat farmers and will serve as the Washington Wheat Ambassadors for the upcoming year. Tessa Jantz of Ritzville and Nicholas Schultheis of Colton were selected after an initial written application process that also included submitting a short introductory video.
Jantz and Schultheis will each be giving a speech at the upcoming Washington Association of Wheat Growers Annual Awards Banquet on Nov. 10 during the Tri-State Grain Growers Convention in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The seniors will be judged on the quality of their presentation, and at the conclusion of the banquet, scholarships funded by the Washington Wheat Foundation of $2,500 and $2,000 will be awarded. Jantz and Schultheis will represent Washington wheat farmers at various civic and community events and will also participate in an advocacy trip to Olympia with WAWG leaders.
Congratulations to the Colton Football Team for winning its 6th Academic State Championship, with a grade point average of 3.58!
