Thank you to the 4-H youth, adult volunteers, and Extension professionals who attended the 2021 Leadership Summit! 

Breakout session topics included: 

 Also included in the Summit was the 4-H Accomplishment Scholarship recognition luncheon and presentation of the Indiana 4-H Volunteer Awards of Excellence.

Thanks to all who joined us for the 2020 Indiana 4-H Leadership Summit - either in person or virtually! 

The 2020 Indiana 4-H Leadership Summit was a combination of a virtual and in-person experience. The Summit offered high quality educational sessions presented virtually via Zoom by experts from around the state. Youth and Adult 4-H Volunteers gathered in-person at host sites to participate in the hands-on activities.

Michelle Cummings was the Summit keynote and capnote speaker. Michelle is well known for her ability to actively engage an audience virtually or in-person. Michelle led us in several activities that you can use with your own 4-H groups!

Also during the Summit, the accomplishments of some of our outstanding youth and adult 4-H Volunteers were recognized!

Thank you for taking time to write a thank you note to at least one of these sponsors for making the Indiana 4-H Leadership Summit possible!
