National Youth Summit on Agri-Science
March 10 – 13, 2022
The Delaware 4-H Program will support two (2) Delaware 4-H youth and one (1) volunteer leader/staff chaperone to attend the National Youth Summit on Agri-Science.
At the National Youth Summit on AgriScience high school students interested in becoming Champions for Agriculture in their communities will gain knowledge and skills in agri-science related to the production of food, feed, fuel, and fiber, especially in the rapidly emerging areas of animal and plant sciences and technologies, learn about challenges facing agriculture, interact with agricultural scientists, researchers, leaders, politicians, and advocates, and increase awareness of career opportunities and pathways in agriculture. Students are trained to create action plans to implement in their communities and teach other youth about what they have learned. The structure of the summits maximizes the amount of hands-on learning experiences and translates that learning to direct outcomes.
This Summit is open to any high school student in grades 9-12 as of September 2021.
Delaware 4-H members must complete an application (attached) to be considered to attend the conference.
This application is due to the State 4-H Office by Wednesday, December 15, 2021
