For the past 30 years, Tennessee 4-H hosted a 4-H Academic Conference in June. This four-day event brought junior high 4-H members from across the state to come to the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville for a week-long, college experience.  

This year, because of the COVID-19 outbreak, 4-H Academic Conference has been converted into a virtual event.

The 4-H Academic UN-Conference, scheduled for June 9-11, will continue to focus on helping 4-H’ers receive knowledge and skill as it relates to their 4-H project.  

UT faculty and Extension Specialists will work with 4-H’ers through hands-on demonstrations, interactive activities and virtual tours.

For the 2020 event, any Tennessee 4-H member in sixth-eighth grades (as of Jan. 1, 2020) is eligible to attend the conference in one of 16 project areas.  Conference fees are also waived for 2020. 4-H members should contact Sierra Knaus at sknaus@utk.edu. The registration deadline is June 1, 2020.
