Logan County 4-H members Klarissa Helton, of the Middletown 4-Hers club, and Emma Rodgers, of the Hollanders 4-H Club, recently attended the 2019 State 4-H Junior Leadership Conference, Camp LEAD. This annual event brought together over 100 junior high delegates and chaperones for a weekend of fun and educational programming. The conference was planned and organized by the Illinois State 4-H Youth Leadership Team, including Grace Skelton, from the Middletown 4-Hers club, who helped lead the weekend events.

As a participant at this junior high conference, delegates develop their leadership skills, meet and interact with youth across the state, learn activities and games to use within their own 4-H clubs, take part in community service, and view state leadership opportunities in action while networking with the State 4-H Youth Leadership Team.

When asked what she took away from the conference, Helton stated JLC taught me how I need to come out of my comfort zone and make new friends. I had such a great time learning ways to lead others!
