SASKATOON, Saskatchewan – The focus was on youth this weekend at the WORLD TRADE CENTER Saskatoon at Prairieland Park with the annual Prairieland Park Youth Leadership Conference with 46 applicants, aged 14 – 21.

The theme for the 2019 conference was Leadership in the Community. Activities began on Saturday with the Speak Up! Workshop by Clinton Monchuk from Farm & Food Care. The workshop included discussions on building public trust in food and farming and gave participants some ideas on how to connect with consumers. The 4-H participants were divided into teams with each group creating a presentation based on how they would respond to various consumer questions relating to agriculture. Jennifer Christie, Director of Business Development for 4-H Canada talked about 4-H branding and what it means to people. Three judges were challenged to mark the participants assignments, activities and by observing the teams as they worked. Other presenters included members of the National 4H Youth Advisory Council and a local instructor from Equi-Health Canada.

First Place and a $4,500 scholarship was presented to Brett Rumpell, a member of the Longlaketon Multiple 4-H Club, from Craven, SK. Brett is currently in her first year at the University of Saskatchewan.
