    Apply for National 4-H Conference

    2019 National 4-H Conference - not familiar? check out the website, or let's chat!  The conference is a yearly opportunity for 4-H members across the US to gather together and discuss issues that face youth and communities. Participants are involved in researching issues of importance in our communities and then working together with other youth to develop and deliver a presentation to a federal department or agency about what they should do to address that issue, from a youth perspective. It is an incredible experience and an opportunity to empower youth to get involved in making positive changes in their communities!
