Know Your Government Conference (KYG)

The annual Know Your Government Conference is held every year on President's Day Weekend (February 15-17, 2014) in Boise.

This event is open to 4-H members in 8th and 9th grade. Delegates can choose between two workshop options for the conference. The Legislative Workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn how a bill becomes a law including debating bills and lobbying for or against bills.

The Judicial Workshop concentrates on how the Idaho Court System works. There will be a mock trial with participants in the various roles.

The cost for KYG is $110 per person. Applications are due to the Ada County Extension Office on Friday, December 13. Scholarships are available through the Ada County Endowment Board.
