2015 4-H Youth Conference Growing Great Leaders

The conference will be on the NDSU campus June 15-18.

“Growing great leaders” is the theme of the 2015 4-H Extension Youth Conference (EYC), which will be held June 15-18 on the North Dakota State University campus in Fargo.

The conference is open to all North Dakota youth who have completed the seventh through 12th grade. Youth do not need to be enrolled in 4-H to attend.

Delegates will participate in workshops and team-building activities, hear from keynote speakers, volunteer in the Fargo-Moorhead community and attend a banquet, all with the goal of become great leaders.

“4-H, along with EYC, has influenced my life in the biggest way,” says Alicia Widhalm, a state 4-H Ambassador. “I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today. I’ve met so many friends that I'm still close with today and learned so many things that have helped me grow as a person.”

The mission of the conference is to energize and empower North Dakota youth with the tools necessary to form partnerships among youth, volunteers, Extension staff and communities.

The registration fee is $225, which includes all meals from Monday evening through Thursday brunch, housing for three nights, an event T-shirt and a photograph of the attending delegates. Taking advantage of the conference bus system will cost an additional $75.

If you are interested in attending or would like more information, contact your local Extension Service office or the Center for 4-H Youth Development at (701) 231-7251 or
