Dream with Disney – 2016 State Teen Conference Registration NOW OPEN!

As we near the holidays, we are very pleased to offer the new and improved online registration for the 2016 State Teen Conference.
Dream with Disney – If you can dream it, you can do it!
The conference will be held on January 30-31, 2016 at the Courtyard Marriott in Newark. This year, the conference falls during National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, so the event will feature a guest speaker who has experienced the real-life effects of addiction. Other workshop topics include Breaking the Code-A Bully Simulation and Social Media & Connections to Careers.
Participants will also be creating Wellness Kits for a local homeless shelter. New Castle County 4-Hers are asked to bring travel-size non-perishable snacks including goldfish, crackers, granola bars, etc.
The cost is $50 for active Junior Council members and $100 for all other Delaware 4-Hers, age 13 and above.  The discount will automatically be added to your registration when you click the “Jr. Council” button. If you are not sure if you qualify for the discount, please contact the 4-H office.
Registration and payment are due January 20, 2016!
