4-H Youth Summit Applications are Now Open!

Applications for the 4-H Youth Summit are now open.  The link is here! Applications are due by December 18th.

This year there is ONLY ONE LARGE 4-H Summit.  It will combine tracks in Agri-science, Healthy living, and STEM.  The Maine 4-H Foundation has once again helped us to fund teams of youth for both Agri-Science and Healthy Living by providing scholarship funds for youth who are selected.
Ignite by 4-H – the 2023 National 4-H Youth Summit to be held in the Washington, DC area, March 9-12, 2023.

High school-aged youth are immersed in an agenda focused on agriscience, healthy living, or STEM. Sessions will be offered within these respective tracks to demonstrate why and how these topics are important and how young people can become changemakers. Find general conference information at https://4-h.org/parents/national-youth-summits/.

At the 2023 National 4-H Youth Summit youth and adult teams will:

  1. Deepen their understanding of key issues in agriscience, healthy living or STEM through learning sessions.
  2. Increase understanding of career pathways in agriscience, healthy living or STEM through interactions with industry leaders.
  3. Be inspired and interact with peers across state lines who share interest in influencing change in agriscience, healthy living or STEM.
  4. As a cornerstone of this experience, delegates will be challenged to collaborate, create, and implement a Lead to Change project that addresses a need or issue in agriscience, healthy living or STEM. This post-summit activation will provide delegates the opportunity to be awarded funding for their plan through a Live (virtual) Evaluation experience.
This is an amazing opportunity for our Maine youth.  Applications are due by December 18th. The link is here!
