Kentucky 4-H is moving its popular Summit conference online this spring as it continues to provide youth with meaningful leadership opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Summit is the premier leadership event for youth in grades 6, 7, and 8. While the event has moved online, participants will still have the opportunity to meet their peers from across the state, connect with their 4-H Camp and participate in leadership workshops presented by members of the Kentucky 4-H State Teen Council and interest-specific 4-H leadership boards.
The event is designed to help participants build their leadership skills and develop their interest for pursuing state-level leadership positions as they transition to senior-level
4-H’ers. Youth can participate in virtual activities on the evenings of Thursday, March 18 and Friday, March 19 and will have a full day of fun, interactive, virtual programming on Saturday, March 20.
4-H’ers must register through the Meade County Extension Office, 4-H program and can receive information by calling 270-422-4958 or by emailing 4-H Agent, Deana K. Reed, at email@example.com. The deadline to register is March 1st. Registration is free and participants can purchase an event t-shirt for $10.00 (due upon registration).
One of Meade County’s very own 4-H members, Laney Nye, will be serving in a leadership role for this conference. Laney is a member of the State 4-H Science, Engineering and Technology Leadership Board. The board will be leading workshops to teach participants more about 4-H SET programs and how to apply for and become a board member.
