4-H Teen Leadership Conference held in Madison

Teens from across the state took part in the 4-H Teen Leadership Conference, held last week on the campus of Dakota State University in Madison.  

More than 40 campers participated in activities, workshops, and sessions on campus and in the community all aimed at helping them gain confidence and grow their leadership skills.  

State 4-H Ambassadors, including Colton Wicks of Nunda and Nicolette Hoffman of Armour, helped plan the week-long event.  

Wicks said the conference is a great opportunity for young people.

Wicks said that he attended the leadership conference for several years before being selected to take on the role of a state 4-H Ambassador.

Nicolette Hoffman said that her interest in 4-H and taking on a leadership role came from attending the Teen Leadership Camp with a friend a couple of years ago.  She said she hopes that the teens attending the conference this year will have a similar experience.

The 4-H Teen Leadership Conference is held annually and is open to teens ages thirteen to eighteen.
