The weekend includes a mix of workshops and educational sessions along with opportunities for community service and exhibits. Registration for Fall Forum is open to any current 9th-12th grade 4-H members in the 2017-2018 school term. This event provides many opportunities for project work, competition, networking, and training for youth and adults.
Early bird registration fee of $70 is due by Monday, November 13. Regular registration is $75 and is due by Monday, November 27. The registration fee covers Saturday lunch, dinner, and lodging, as well as Sunday breakfast. Pizzas can be ordered Saturday morning or at lunch and are $12 each.
There will be a Fall Forum 4K race on Sunday morning. The registration fee for the race is $12 and includes a Clover Glove race t-shirt.
4-H members can apply to teach a workshop at Fall Forum. The application form is on the Fall Forum website at http://www.georgia4h.org/fallforum/. Application deadline is Friday, November 17.
