State and National Events
Step outside your comfort zone and represent Idaho.
Teen 4-Hers can apply for one or more national 4-H conferences. Each has a rich history and purpose. Delegates selected as representatives of Idaho 4-H make new friends from around the country and enrich the lives of others.
Travel to Atlanta, Georgia, Washington, D.C. or Madison, Wisconsin for these national conferences.
National events require a minimum delegation size and may be canceled by the UI Extension 4-H Youth Development office.
Idaho 4-H holds statewide events for members in grades 8 and up who are ready to move beyond their county borders.
