More than 250 youth from across New Hampshire and neighboring states will converge on campus June 26 for the 33rd annual state 4-H Teen Conference.
The “Take a Chance” conference, running June 26–29, was planned by the state 4-H Teen Council and offers a variety of workshops, classes and day trips to Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, Boston’s Museum of Science, the Freedom Trail, or the New England Aquarium.
4-H, the youth educational program of UNH Cooperative Extension and sponsor of the conference, helps youth acquire knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes to help them become productive and contributing members of society. The conference is open to all teens completing eighth grade (or age 14 by the first day of conference) through 12th grade.
On the first day of the conference, teens will work on a community service project producing promotional materials for, and about, 4-H. Teens will write storyboards, and produce video and audio PSAs. They also will create posters, website pages, bookmarks and brochures. Participating 4-H’ers will share their story of how 4-H positively impacts their lives.
