National Youth Summit on Healthy Living
February 16-19, 2018
At the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living, high school students develop the knowledge and skills to address today’s issues including nutrition education, physical fitness, wellness, and emotional well-being. National 4-H Council and National 4-H Conference Center have partnered with professionals in family consumer science and healthy living to host the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living. Students are trained to create action plans to implement in their communities and teach other youth about what they have learned. The structure of the summit maximizes a number of hands-on learning experiences and translates that learning to direct outcomes.
This Summit is open to any high school student in grades 9-12 as of September 2017. Participate as a team (as few as two and as many as 10) with at least one adult mentor/chaperone. There should be at least one chaperone for every eight youth participants. Youth interested in attending National Youth Summit on Healthy Living should contact leaders in their school, club, scout troop, religious organization or parent to identify an adult to register and accompany them at the event.
Delaware 4-H members and Healthy Living Ambassadors must fill out the Healthy Living Summit 2018 Application to be considered to attend the conference.
This application is due to the State 4-H Office by Friday, December 15, 2017.
