Skye Dickson, Megan Leitner, Averey Marean and Royce Brauer, all from Green County, were part of nearly 400 4-H youth who attended the 99th annual WI 4-H & Youth Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus June 24-27.

The annual four-day conference gives youth a chance to learn about a variety of 4-H and other youth programs, experience hands-on learning in a university campus atmosphere, strengthen life skills such as communication and leadership, gain knowledge to share back home, and exchange ideas and form friendships with youth from around the state.

This year's theme, "Prism of Possibilities," encouraged youth to explore all of the possibilities for the future. Workshop topics included everything from communication arts to building leadership skills, healthy living, STEM topics, youth citizenship, and a host of other exciting subjects. Students also participated in a variety of community service projects designed to stimulate interest in replicating similar projects in their own communities.

Additionally, Royce Brauer and Averey Marean applied and were selected to participate in 4-H Drama Company, the state 4-H theater arts group, performing in a production for the entire conference delegation.

The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation provided financial support for this conference.
