WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Indiana 4-H Youth Development invites youth in grades 7-12 to participate in the 2021 Indiana 4-H Road Show, an 18-day event series of fun and learning for all.
Instead of gathering crowds for annual summer events such as 4-H Academy at Purdue, State 4-H Junior Leader Conference and 4-H Round-Up, Indiana 4-H has scheduled 18 one-day sessions, each focused on a different topic. area of interest and held at multiple locations across the state.
“The Indiana 4-H Road Show will engage young people with Purdue University faculty and staff, as they’ve come to expect from our typical on-campus events during the summer,” said Casey Mull, Director Extension Assistant, 4-H Youth Development. “We’re excited to bring a bit of the West Lafayette campus to our 92 counties.”
Students will meet in person while learning virtually from Purdue experts. From bees and wildlife to exploring career options, financial management, aviation, emergency medical services and more, young people will learn the topics of their choice through hands-on activities.
Each day will begin with an on-site check-in at 9 a.m. ET. Sessions will begin at 9:30 a.m., with lunch at noon, and end at 3:30 p.m. after the afternoon programming. In-person sessions will adhere to local health and safety guidelines.
Registration is $25 per person per day or $100 per person for five days. Registration fee includes lunch, a special 4-H item, and resources related to the day’s Road Show session. Register by May 15 at 4-H online. You don’t have to be a current 4-H member to participate.
