Iowa 4-H Youth Conference

Iowa 4-H Youth Conference
June 28-30, 2016
Theme: Dive To New Depths
Every June, almost 1000 teenagers converge on the campus of Iowa State University for 3 days full of speakers, workshops, mixers, dances, a banquet, and community service activities. 
If you've completed 8th grade, you're eligible to attend. You don't even have to be in 4-H to attend this conference! You will get to experience campus life and meet new people from across the state! You will be having fun while learning by doing, dancing the nights away, and serving the community. You will get to learn new things to take back to your community and school, and in the process you might even discover something new about yourself! There are opportunities for you to share your talents with the rest of the delegation through small group discussion, the Conference Chorus, and a Talent Show!
If you have a specific interest in animal science, you might want to look into becoming part of the ROUND-UP track!  There are also workshop tracks that span all 3 days for certain topics if you'd like to study something in more depth.  Or, you can choose different workshops each day to get more variety while you're on campus. 
If you'd like to be part of the team to capture the Conference in photos, join our Iowa 4-H Youth Camera Corps, and bring your camera.  We're doing things a little differently this year and you'll get to learn photo skills and put them to work through the workshop series.
Please join us in June for the most incredible three days of your life at the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference!
