With elections held online, contest from the comfort of homes and nightly assemblies supported by broadband, 4-H University, held virtually June 22-25, looked a lot different this year. This was the 106th annual event and for the first time was not held on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge. 4-H’ers from across the state typically stay on campus for the week and participate in educational programs and contest, convene to elect new state officers and leadership boards, and take part in social activities.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, 4-H agents and volunteers decided to move the event online. “The sheer magnitude of developing the virtual 4-H University took many dedicated 4-H professionals and IT specialists,” said Janet Fox, LSU AgCenter 4-H department head. “We all had a steep learning curve, but in the end, I’m so proud and amazed by the responsiveness of our 4-H professionals and the resilience of our 4-H members”.
