  • Mar 28 - Apr 3 Postponed - National 4-H Conference National 4‑H Conference is the pinnacle experience in 4‑H Civic Engagement, providing the opportunity for young people to connect, learn, engage, lead and impact their communities, their nation and their world. Land Grant University 4‑H Departments send delegations of 4‑H youth between ages 15 and 19 to participate in the National 4‑H Conference. At the conference, delegates prepare and present briefings on important societal topics to federal officials in Washington, D.C. 4‑H youth also have the opportunity to engage in personal development experiences that increase their knowledge, resources, and skills while discussing topics affecting youth and 4‑H programming nationwide. Delegates not only learn while at the conference: they are empowered to create positive social change in their communities and have the opportunity to practice and apply their skills in a real-world setting. https://4-h.org/parents/national-4-h-conference/ Chevy Chase, GA - (526.0 Miles)
