4-H News Notes
4-H State Leadership Conference opens!
Hello 4-H community,
The online registration for the 2016 4-H State Leadership Conference is now open at http://4h.ucanr.edu/4-H_Events/SLC/ ! There have been a number of updates on how this 4-H conference is run but still offers leadership, fellowship and fun for teens!
This year, the event will be held at Humbolt State University July 28th – 31st, 2016. Once again, the Monterey County Leaders Council will offer a scholarship to assist with registration fees for qualified members.
Interested teen delegates will need to follow all the directions on the online registration form and are to pay by credit card through the state 4-H secure website. Early Tours and the centralized transportation bus are additional fees that your family is responsible for.
Attached is the Council’s scholarship application that is due by May 25th, 2016 directly to the Monterey County 4-H offices. The Council will provide funds for the All Stars, All Star Advisor (s) and up to 2 adult chaperones for our county.
Council scholarships are paid after the member attends. Members who have applied for the scholarship will be notified of the amount they have received by June.
Just like last year, there will be a mandatory SLC orientation meeting at the county offices 7/19/15 at 5:30pm. All delegates and chaperones are to attend.
Note - The state also offers a scholarship on the registration website to consider.
I hope that your teen member will consider this 4-H Leadership Conference as it has a long and rich history with our local program!
