2020 Youth Summit Planning Teams
Apply to join one of the Youth Summit Planning Teams! Most youth choose to apply for the one in their area (map of areas here) because it is closest to them, but you can join any of the four planning teams regardless of where you live. You must be a senior 4-H member, attend the planning team weekend retreat, all planning meetings, and be self motivated to complete assigned tasks. More detail in the application. Application due March 15, 2019.
