4-H clover National 4-H Conference

The National 4‑H Conference is the pinnacle experience in 4‑H civic engagement, providing the opportunity for young people to connect, learn, engage, lead and impact their communities, nation and world. 

At the conference, delegates have the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions and presentations to federal partner agencies and engage with their U.S. senators and representatives.

Minnesota 4-H selects four to eight youth members to attend this conference each spring. 

The Minnesota delegation engages in pre-departure Zoom webinars with other Minnesota delegates, then travels together to the conference in Crystal City, Va./Washington, D.C., where they engage with over 250 youth leaders from across the U.S., U.S. territories, tribal nations and Canadian provinces. Upon return, delegates will implement their action plan to make a positive impact on an issue of interest.

Find more information on the National 4-H Conference website.

The 2024 National 4-H Conference will be held April 19-24, 2024. 

Pre-departure meetings will begin in January 2024 for selected delegates. See below for application information.
