Academic Un-Conference 2020

June 1 Deadline Rapidly Approaching!


What does BINGO, price packages, office hours and tours of lands far, far away have to do with Junior High Academic Conference?
Yep! Academic Conference looks a little different this year. We won’t really be on campus this summer, but that won’t stop all of the fun and great learning adventures! We have a few surprise elements for Tennessee 4-H members and lots of prizes to be won! It’s gonna be great!

Registration is now open for the 2020 4-H Junior High Academic Un-Conference!

Is your 4-H’er ready for a unique, virtual experience?

I conquered Academic Un-Conference Summer 2020

Here’s an opportunity for your junior high 4-H member to experience college life virtually. Working with UT professors, specialists and faculty members, 4-H members will learn in-depth knowledge about their 4-H project area, explore careers and network other 4-H members across the state while participating in fun, interactive, hands-on experiences!


Applications are not needed for this year’s event. However, a 4-H’er may only sign up for one project area. ALL 4-H members in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades (as of January 1, 2020) are eligible to attend. Registration is now available.

The event is June 9-11, 2020. Registration deadline is June 1 at 11:59 p.m.

A promotional flyer and press release is coming to your in-box tomorrow!
