State and National Events

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.

State Events

4-H holds statewide events for members in grades eight and up who are ready to move beyond their county borders.

The Know Your Government Conference (KYG), is held annually over Presidents Day weekend in Boise while the Idaho legislature is in session. Designed for students in grades eight to nine, KYG is a project as well as an experience.
