Iowa Youth Propose Solutions to Ag Problems at National Summit

POCAHONTAS, Iowa — Ten youth represented Iowa at the 2020 National Youth Summit on Agri-Science in Washington, D.C. this month. The high school youth delegates traveled to Washington, D.C. after they were selected by Iowa 4-H Youth Development program coordinators to attend the event at the National 4-H Conference Center.

This year’s Agri-Science conference Jan. 9-12 addressed the modern challenges facing agricultural production and the role of researchers, leaders and public advocates, when it comes to feeding future global populations. Through a combination of workshops, field trips and skill development opportunities, youth explored such challenges and proposed their own solutions.
