Indiana 4-H Youth and Adult Congress​​

Indiana 4-H Youth and Adult Congress attendees participate in a hands-on demonstration in the Glass Barn at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

This annual event has five objectives: Create an incentive program to aid in the retention of Indiana 4-H members in grades 8-12; Establish significant scholarship opportunities to 4-H members in areas of 4-H program accomplishment; Provide l​eadership/achievement role models for younger 4-H members; Create a focal point for the Indiana 4-H Foundation and the Indiana 4-H program; Establish a state-wide Junior Leader event which will bring focus to the Junior Leader program, therefore strengthening local, county, area and state 4-H programs; and empowering youth for community action. The program is supported by the Indiana 4-H Foundation and its sponsors. Included in the program is a keynote speaker, three breakout leadership sessions, and a luncheon to recognize the 4-H Accomplishment Scholarship recipients. Resources are included to provide youth and adult volunteers and staff with information they can share and replicate with their 4-H Jr. Leaders, Club Officers, and other 4-H members with leadership responsibilities.​
