LSU AgCenter Promotes Teen Agricultural Leadership

In *All by AgIsAmerica

The Louisiana State University AgCenter recently sponsors the 4-H Junior Leadership Conference bringing 300 teen leaders from across the state to use their time and talents to become the superheroes of tomorrow. The track activities and experiments highlighted the role of agriculture in feeding the world now and in the future. The teen leaders who attended learned teamwork and communication skills while exploring selected subject matter in six interactive educational tracks, which focused on science, engineering and technology, leadership, and agriculture, to name a few.

In addition to the leadership and educational tracks the delegates gained, they also did some terrific service work. They donated more than 1,000 items to make chemo care kits to support the state 4-H service project: helping children with cancer. The performing arts track members also assembled kits for superhero capes for patients at St. Jude’s Affiliate Clinic at the Children’s Hospital of LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.
