Meet The WFBF Event Ambassadors

Three collegiate students have been selected as WFBF’s Event Ambassadors. In the inaugural year of this program, Breanna Cisketti, Claire Esselman and Katrina Hoesly will use digital platforms to share highlights from the WFBF Annual Meeting & YFA Conference. This conference will take place December 1-4, 2023 at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells.

The goal of the ambassador program is to provide collegiate students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience covering an event while also having a strong social media presence for a unique audience. These positions require writing skills relevant to social media, the ability to capture and edit photos, an understanding of social media content creation and strategy, and an eye for capturing the most interesting stories within a fast-paced environment.
