The Ohio 4-H Volunteer 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! We welcome nearly 1,500 teen and adult volunteers to participant 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, numerous sessions focus on animal sciences, and so much more.

In addition to the educational sessions, the day features the Bob Evans Farms 4-H Volunteer Recognition Luncheon for the adults highlighting the extraordinary accomplishments of volunteers. The teens have a luncheon that recognizes their peers and features a keynote speaker.

Need some 4-H bling? We have that too! Our MarketPlace features a variety of 4-H items, including apparel, to purchase. Representatives are available to speak to you about fundraising opportunities for 4-H clubs, project books, and more.

Now all you need to do is complete the Ohio 4-H Volunteer Conference Registration Form and return to the Extension office.
