  • Value Statement:
    • Understanding that we can never fully re-create an in-person experience in a virtual space, we are putting plans in place to give participants the opportunity to take part in a postitive and engaging 2021 National 4-H Conference. Federal agency briefings, keynote and cap note speakers, interactive workshops, fun activities allowing youth to connect with one another, a Capital Hill experience and the new Secretary of Agriculture's welcome will be presented on this state-of-the-art virtual technology platform designed especially for youth. In addition, a special 4-H Shoutout program conceived of and designed by our Conference Youth Leadership Team will be a feature this year in which delegates will have an opportunity to shoot a video telling their 4-H stories which will be shared with attendees. After the conference states may use these videos in their 4-H programs and promotions. Participants will additionally recieve an exclusive conference box, including curriculum, tips and tools they can use in their local 4-H work, a conference T-shirt and 4-H items to help bring a little bit of the excitement of the conference into the home settings. The registration cost covers teh conference materials box, speaker fees, online facilitation costs, registration services, IT, etc. It is the hope that the lower registration cost and no transportation costs will allow for greater numbers of youth to participate. While virtual learning conferences do not include room and board several additional programming costs are incurred to make the experience top notch and highly engaging. The fee has been reduced from the usual in-person youth price of $975 to $325, a savings of 66%! Adult chaperones who normally pay $1100 to participate will be part of this years' experience at no charge. We will be able to accommodate up to 350 youth for the Conference this year and we hope that every one of those slots are filled! Recognizing that internet connection may be an issue for some youth delegates, we ask that local Extension units work with delegates on strategies for participation. Please contact us for more details.
