Nearly 750 youth delegates, along with 4-H staff and volunteers, attended the 2017 State 4-H Conference & Animal Science ROUNDUP held on the Iowa State University (ISU) campus in Ames. Delegates participated in educational and fun workshops, were inspired by motivational speakers and enriched others' lives through community service projects before they enjoyed nightly entertainment of dancing, swimming, bowling, awards banquet and more. Youth experienced life in residential halls during their three-day stay. Animal Science delegates participated in specialized workshops with ISU faculty and staff focusing on beef, sheep, swine, poultry and horses, learning about new animal technologies and potential career opportunities. During the conference the 2017-18 Iowa State 4-H Council members were inducted and introduced, including northeast Iowa youth Hanna Schmitt and Hope Dohlman.
