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 email@example.com. The registration deadline is June 1, 2020.
