    *Ignore May 1 deadline mentioned in application*

    Youth and adult members from Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee gather during the summer to plan and implement SRTLC. Each year, Florida can appoint three (3) youth members to represent them in the planning and implementation process. Senior 4-H members ages 14-18 (as of September 1 of the current 4-H year), are invited to apply to be on this planning committee. Strong preference is given to those members who have attended SRTLC in the past, but we welcome applications from any 4-H member who is of age and has a passion for program planning and implementation.

    Responsibilities for the three chosen 4-H members will include Zoom planning meetings leading up to the event and facilitating both an educational workshop and roundtable discussion during the conference. They need to be available to attend the pre-conference meeting the day before the event and the full conference. This is a great opportunity to build leadership and event planning related skills alongside youth and adults from Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
