The Ohio 4-H Conference takes place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on the second Saturday in March.
The Ohio 4-H Conference is the largest gathering of 4-H volunteers in the United States! Nearly 1,200 teen and adult volunteers participate each year. The Ohio 4-H Conference is designed to equip participants with resources, information, and skills to meet the ever-changing needs of youth. Attendees have the opportunity to receive training in more than 125 different topics such as career exploration, risk management, camping, leadership, cake decorating, dancing, animal sciences, and much more.
In addition to the educational sessions, the day features the Ohio 4-H Volunteer Recognition Luncheon highlighting the extraordinary accomplishments of volunteers. The teens (age 13 and older) have a luncheon that recognizes their peers and often features a keynote speaker. Matthew Swearingen, Adams County 4-Her, has been named the Ohio 4-H Teen of the Year and will be recognized at the Ohio 4-H Teen luncheon and Joy Bauman, Adams County 4-H Volunteer, will receive the Ohio 4-H Alumni Award at the Volunteer luncheon. The Adams County 4-H Advisory Committee provides financial support to teens and volunteers wishing to attend Ohio 4-H Conference. This year we would like to take an especially large delegation to cheer on Matthew and Joy as they are recognized for their achievements.
