One of their major responsibilities is planning the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference held in Ames, Iowa every June. The Iowa State 4-H Council members also serve as ambassadors for 4-H, often meeting with county councils and 4-H groups in their local areas. The State Fair, state 4-H events, and leadership workshops also keep the council active.
Project Awards - 4-H'ers who have focused on specific project areas during their 4-H experience can apply for recognition for their efforts through this program. Awarded a $100 tentative award, 4-H'ers who have demonstrated mastery, leadership, communication, and service in their project will be recognized as the top in the state.
