Request for Proposal: National Youth Summit on Healthy Living

National 4‑H Conference Center invites you to submit a proposal to conduct a workshop for the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living to be held February 13-16, 2020 at the National 4‑H Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Workshops provide students a place to gain information in specific subject areas to increase knowledge, help inspire career paths and help participants to create action plans to implement in their communities to teach other youth about what they have learned when they return home.  Youth and adults working together is a powerful method to share information and bring about positive outcomes in their home states. Interested youth and adult teams have an opportunity to submit a proposal for the NYS on Healthy Living.

The target audience are youth in grades 9–12, and each 45 minute workshop will have an average of 15 – 30 participants. It is highly recommended that workshops include a 15-minute, hands-on activity as part of the session plus handouts/outlines for participants to take home.

Proposal submission deadline: December 6, 2019
