“Don’t limit your challenges. Challenge your limits.” That’s one of the ways more than 600 Iowa teenagers describe their vision for the future of the 4-H Youth Development program in Iowa.

Thirty-six State 4-H Council members were inducted at the closing ceremonies of the annual Iowa 4-H Youth Conference on June 27.

Eight hundred high school students from every corner of Iowa attended the state 4-H Youth Conference in June. The conference gives youth the opportunity to meet new friends, find new opportunities, and learn about the community and themselves.

The 4-H’ers for 4-H Campaign raised $24,063.27 to support Iowa 4-H youth programs and activities. All funds from the campaign help families across the state by providing financial assistance for program fees and for youth to attend 4-H camps, intermediate trips and state events such as the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.
