Hundreds to gather at NMSU for annual 4-H State Conference DATE: 07/08/2016 WRITER: Peter Foreman, 575-646-6233, email@example.com CONTACT: Amy Zemler, 575-646-5204, firstname.lastname@example.org Hundreds of 4-H members will be making their way to New Mexico State University for the 93rd annual 4-H State Conference, July 11-14 at Corbett Center. “This year’s theme is, ‘What imprint will you leave?’” Amy Zemler said, 4-H youth activities specialist. She said that it is based on footprints left in sand and relating to imprints left by actions. The conference will include dances, workshops, competitions, officer elections and more. Along with the many activities taking place, Zemler said there will be “quite a spread of contests” that will give attendees the opportunity to win state titles in their respected events and the opportunity to compete for national titles. The conference will also be joined by Joe Fingerhut, a youth speaker and author of “Permission to Play: How Teens Can Build a Life that is Fun, Fulfilling, and Promising.” There will also be a STEM program workshop along with workshops held by the 4-H Leadership Team from Colorado.
