Kansas City, Missouri

The annual Summit provides opportunities for youth to explore careers, technology, environment and cultural diversity in a global society. Hands-on and interactive sessions involve youth in exploring issues central to their lives, families and communities – thus broadening their understanding of the world around them.

The Summit features tours to Kansas City area businesses and organizations, workshops showcasing a variety of careers, and cultural events.  Dances, group events and other programs provide opportunities for youth to meet youth delegates from Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

Youth must be 15 years of age or older by January 1 to participate and only those attending the conference for the first or second time are eligible to register.

Adult chaperone requirements
A ratio of one adult chaperone to ten delegates is required and a chaperone must be listed on all county registration forms.

Because of the adult/youth ratio requirements, adults should plan to participate in the program fully.


Kansas City Airport Hilton Hotel
8801 NW 112th Street
Kansas City, Missouri
Telephone: 816-891-8900

The cost is $375 for youth delegates (4 per sleeping room) and
$405 for adults/staff (2 per sleeping room)

The registration fee includes lodging, activities, insurance, tour transportation and most meals (except lunch on Friday and Saturday and dinner Friday night).

Registration forms are submitted to your county MU Extension center.  Check with your county office for local due date.  Registration from counties must be received at the state 4-H office no later than December 15.

Additional information will be sent to county 4-H youth staff and participants in a later mailing to include a letter to school administrators for excused absence from class, dress code and conference code of conduct.

Refund and cancellation policy
Because numbers must be guaranteed with the hotel, conference policy allows no refunds after February 1. Delegations may substitute males for males and females for females if they agree to take the same roommates and activity assignments as the original delegate. The deadline for making substitutions is March 1.

Summit registration is between 3:00–4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 14; the Summit concludes at 8:00 a.m. on March 17.

The Summit planning committee is committed to making activities and programs accessible to all participants. If a youth or adult has special requirements due to physical, vision, hearing or other disability, please make sure the need is identified.
