Julia Moats, Hunter Guenther, Brook Putz and Catherine Pehler joined hundreds of 4‑H youth who attended the 99th annual 4-H & Youth Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in June.
Moats, Guenther, Berg and Pehler joined about 400 other young people representing the University of Wisconsin Madison Division of Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program in celebrating the 99th anniversary of the youth program in Wisconsin at the conference.
The annual four-day conference gives youth a chance to learn about a variety of 4-H and other youth programs, experience hands-on learning in a university campus atmosphere, strengthen life skills such as communication and leadership, gain knowledge to share back home, and exchange ideas and form friendships with youth from around the state.
Wisconsin 4-H & Youth Conference created opportunities for delegates to participate in a wide variety of assemblies, seminars and service projects that provided a pre-college experience that focused on personal development, broadening of interests and developing new skills. “Prism of Possibilities” encourages all of us to explore all of the possibilities we have for the future.
Workshop topics included everything from communication arts to building leadership skills, healthy living, STEM topics, youth citizenship, and a host of other exciting subjects. The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation provided financial support for this conference.
