MONROE - Morgan Godfrey of Green County was one of hundreds of 4-H youth who attended the 95th annual 4-H and Youth Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in June.

Godfrey joined about 500 other young people representing UW Extension's 4-H Youth Development program in celebrating the 94th anniversary of the youth program in Wisconsin.

The annual four-day conference gives youth a chance to learn about a variety of 4-H and other youth programs, experience hands-on learning in a university campus atmosphere, strengthen life skills such as communication and leadership, gain knowledge to share back home, exchange ideas and form friendships with youth from around the state.

The delegates attended workshops and assemblies developed around the theme "100 Years of Growing Wisconsin Leaders" which highlighted leadership, individual responsibility, goal setting, healthy living and living up to potential. Students participate in a variety of community service projects designed to stimulate interest in replicating similar projects in their own communities.

Erin Gellings of Monroe also went on a 4-H sponsored trip recently. Gellings was one of 45 youth from the state of Wisconsin who attended Citizenship Washington Focus. The event was held June 13 through 21 in Washington D.C.
