Registration is now open for Nebraska youth to attend the National Youth Summit Series at the National 4-H Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Md.
The National Youth Summit Series brings together some of the best and brightest students to focus on STEM, agriscience, healthy living, and photography. Designed for high school students (grades 9-12), the Summits provide opportunities to learn technical skills, participate in hands-on activities, workshops, and engage with nationally-recognized leaders.
The four summits are scheduled for:
- STEM Summit, Oct. 24-27
- Agri-Science Summit, Jan. 9-12, 2020
- Healthy Living Summit, Feb. 13-16, 2020
- Photography Summit, Feb. 26-March 1
Students typically attend in groups comprised of two to eight youth and are accompanied by an adult mentor/chaperone. School year 2019-2020 will be the seventh year of programs.
In school year 2015-2016, surveys show up to a 47 percent increase in the number of students who felt after attending a Summit they were more aware of areas of study they could pursue in college relating to their Summit subject matter. The National Youth Summit Series aims to teach lessons students can use for the betterment of their personal lives and communities.
