Kentucky 4-H is moving its popular summit online this spring as it continues to provide youth with meaningful leadership opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Summit is the premier leadership event for middle school 4-H'ers. While the event has moved online, participants will still have the opportunity to meet their peers from across the state, connect with their 4-H Camp and participate in leadership workshops presented by members of the Kentucky 4-H State Teen Council and interest-specific 4-H leadership boards.
The event is designed to help sixth, seventh and eighth-graders build their leadership skills and develop their interest for pursuing state-level leadership positions as they transition to senior-level 4-H'ers.
Youth can participate in virtual activities on the evenings of Thursday, March 18 and Friday, March 19. 4-H members will have a full day of fun, interactive, virtual programming on Saturday, March 20.
4-H'ers must register through their local 4-H youth development agent to participate in Summit.
For more information or to register for the event, contact 4-H Agent, Aubrey Lawson at the Madison County office of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.
