Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunties for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity. 4-H members work to master leadership and citizenship skills, this event inspires teens to continue their 4-H involvment through belonging to a group of like-minded peers and mentors.  During this 4 day conference, teens develop valuable life skills, leadership competencies and communication abilities by taking part in over 75+ two day and one day educational, hands-on and fun classes.  Delegates have an opportunity to practice independence while staying on the University of Kentucky campus living in dorms, visiting "The 90" and other acedemic and student life buildings that allow them to see how a real college student lives.  Delegates are encouraged to explore their future education and degree plans by exploring all the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment can offer.  Several contests or events are held during this conference along with service learning projects to learn generosity.  Featured events include: Fashion Revue, the Culinary Challenge, State 4-H Officer elections, and selection of our future Teen Board members.
