State 4-H Members Attending National Conference
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/30/2018

Nine 4-H members from Wisconsin will spend a week in the nation's capital in early April. They are among 300 youth and adults from around the nation who are attending the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C.

As delegates, the students are meeting April 7-12 to share ideas and form recommendations in guiding future national 4-H youth development programs in their communities. Conference activities include workshops and other activities that emphasize civic engagement, youth-adult partnerships and professional development.

Delegates representing the Badger State include Bridget Dean, Washington Co., Tyler Franklin, St. Croix Co., Joelle Heller, Waukesha Co., Brianna Jones, Waukesha Co., Veronica Klenke, Chippewa Co., Allison Olson, Eau Claire Co., Linnea Tabaka, Green Co., Sydney Tone, Dane Co., and Camron VanLoo, Fond du Lac Co. The group is being chaperoned by Sheboygan County Youth Development Educator Sarah Tarjeson and Joshua Chrest of Pierce County.

Besides their obligations at the conference, member-leaders are also meeting with the state congressional leaders during Capitol Hill Day to represent youth from Wisconsin and discuss state 4-H programs with lawmakers and their staff.

Since its inception, the National 4-H Conference has served as an avenue to assist youth and adult leaders in developing recommendations to guide 4-H programs nationally and in their communities.
