Workshop Proposals for Idaho 4-H State Teen Association Convention Now Being Accepted

December 19, 2019

The 4-H Youth Development Department is requesting workshop proposals for the 2020 Idaho 4-H State Teen Association Convention (STAC), formerly Idaho 4-H Teen Conference, which will be held June 22-25, 2020, on the Moscow campus. This event brings youth ages 14-18 from across the state to participate in activities focusing on post-secondary and career exploration. The conference is open to all Idaho teens, with an increased focus on recruitment from rural, isolated communities and underserved populations. Teens participate in on-campus workshops, campus and community tours, service learning, state elections and networking. In addition, and in partnership with Vice Provost Dean Kahler and the Strategic Enrollment Management team, teens will receive an in-depth overview of the University of Idaho.

Workshop proposals are being sought for two teaching opportunities:

  • Opportunity 1: A two-hour workshop (with the opportunity for a repeat of up to three sessions during the scheduled workshop times);
  • Opportunity 2: A six-hour track (three, two-hour sessions).

Workshops that include dynamic, engaging, hands-on activities are preferred. Topics should focus on skills that are applicable to youth now or in their future career. Space is limited. Applications will be reviewed by the Convention Steering Committee Team during their planning retreat in January. Proposals must be received by 5 p.m. Jan. 22, 2020, and notifications regarding the status of proposals will be received by mid-February. Submit a proposal.

Tentative Workshop Schedule: 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, June 23, 2020; and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:30-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
