Do you like to invent, build, or experiment?  Do you ever catch yourself wondering how something can be improved?  Have you ever taken something apart just to see how it works? The Maker National Youth Summit is for the creative and curious young minds of the next generation of innovators.  Participants make what they can with a variety of materials from a range of fields, utilizing their resourcefulness and creativity.

The National Youth Maker Summit takes place November 1-4, 2018.  Summit fees include accommodations at the National 4‑H Conference Center, meals, educational programming and tours including a guided nighttime tour of the monuments and memorials in Washington, DC.  All-you-can-eat meals are served at the Clover Cafe at National 4‑H Conference Center beginning with dinner on Thursday, November 1 and ending with a box lunch on Sunday, November 4, 2018.


This Summit is open to any high school student in grades 9-12. Participate as a team (as few as two and as many as 10) with at least one adult mentor/chaperone. Youth interested in participating should contact leaders in their school, scout troop, religious organization or club to identify an adult to register and accompany them at the event.
