4-H Summit is one of the premier leadership opportunities for middle-school-aged youth. The program gives youth the opportunity to network with peers, learn leadership techniques and strategies, and master new skills.
This year, the 4-H Summit took place on March 17-19, 2022, and was held at the Lake Cumberland 4-H Educational Center. Myla Curry, Ty Coleman, Katie Kean, Kelsey Breeding, and J.T. Loy were in attendance representing Adair County. Noah Newell from Adair County was also in attendance. Noah is a member of the State 4-H Teen Council and helped to plan and conduct this year’s Teen Summit.
Summit is a wonderful opportunity for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade youth to learn more about leadership opportunities that are open to them when they become senior 4-H members. Through hands-on workshops, group living, recreation, and recognition, 4-H’ers gained independence, improved communication skills, and self-confidence. During the event, they participated in a community service project and learn about healthy living by completing an event-wide health activity.
In addition, Summit gave senior 4-H’ers an opportunity to share their leadership talents with others. All delegates received leadership training from members of the State 4-H Teen Council and watched a motivational program put on by members of the Kentucky 4-H Healthy Living Board.
