What does BINGO, prize 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 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.
