High school students from all across Georgia are invited to register for the annual Southern Region Teen Leadership Conference. The event will be held at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center in Crossville, Tennessee from September 19-22,2019. This Regional event is a great way to meet other youth from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. The event is open to youth in 9th-12th grade who are currently enrolled in 4-H. Registration cost for the event is $320 which includes charter bus transportation to the event (from Savannah or Macon), an event t-shirt, lodging, and most meals. The event is chaperoned by Extension\4-H staff members and volunteers who are assigned. Note: There is not a Tattnall County 4-H staff person or volunteer assigned to the event this year.

WORKSHOPS AND FUNSHOPS NEEDED! 4-H’ers are encouraged to apply to teach a Workshop or Funshop during the conference. We recommend pairing up with an adult who is attending or a fellow 4-H’er who shares your interest to help you teach your class. This is a wonderful opportunity to do some regional teaching on a topic you are interested in! Submit your workshop proposal using the following link by August 30: https://uky.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0TJ9mmUbmRh42z3

 EXHIBITS: Counties and 4-H’ers are also encouraged to bring exhibits for the State Showcase. You can apply for an exhibit using this application, which is also due by August 30: https://ugeorgia.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_etzTZNEenSEdLx3
