National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference

General Expense and Travel Information to Louisville, KY

4-H’ers expenses to the National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference in Louisville, KY will be paid by 4-H Development Poultry Funds. Parents of 4-H’ers who are interested in attending these events must make their own travel, motel/hotel, and meal arrangements. When a 4-H’er travels and stays with their parents/guardians in Louisville, all expenses of the 4-H’er will be paid by the parents/guardians. The Poultry Specialist will be responsible for registering all 4-H’ers for the National Conference.

In the state judging contest, all members of the state #1 senior team must meet the state requirements to be eligible to advance to the next level of competition (i.e. National Contest). Requirements state “All contestants must be 14-18 years old as of January 1 of the current year.” Any teams with an ineligible individual will not be allowed to continue beyond state competition or the state 4-H Poultry Specialist may choose an appropriate eligible substitute(s).
