It has been a week and Casco Comets 4-H member Savannah Bailey is still beaming about her experience at the National 4-H Youth Summit on Agri-science. Instead of taking place in Washington D.C., Bailey and other 4-H members from across the country tuned in from home on their devices. Participants got to meet with other delegates from across the country and listen to speakers from agriculture-related fields. It was an opportunity for Bailey to connect with other 4-H members and professionals pursuing a career in animal science. She says she was able to take a lot away from the three-day summit.
Despite taking place virtually, Bailey says she was able to interact with kids and made a few friends along the way. She hopes she will have the opportunity to participate again when National 4-H Youth Summits return to in-person events.
