WOT County 4-H’ers Gain Leadership Skills At BLU

In February, nearly 500 youth from across Minnesota gathered to participate in the annual 4-H Building Leadership and Understanding (BLU) youth leadership workshops. Four regional BLU leadership events were held across the state, a fifth was planned, but was unable to be held due to winter weather.
This year’s conference theme was, “Map it Out with 4-H,” which taught participants about learning styles and communication skills, and challenged them to apply these skills to their daily lives. The youth engaged in small group discussions, educational workshops and large group activities to meet other youth from throughout the region.
