Register now for a regional youth leadership workshop, BLU!

Join us for BLU 2020 graphic

Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to attend the 2020 4-H Building Leadership & Understanding (BLU) leadership workshops!

BLU is a youth leadership workshop that brings together youth from across the region to engage in activities and leadership lessons. Activities are planned by the Minnesota 4-H State Ambassadors and a regional planning team.

This year's BLU focuses on “Unmasking Your Inner Leader”. We will be discussing what makes a leader, leadership strengths, and leadership styles including follower-ship and introvert/extrovert leadership.

Five BLUs will be held at locations across the state – registration deadlines vary by location. 

2020 dates and locations:

  • Feb 1: Southwest BLU, Marshall.
  • Feb 8-9: Northwest BLU, Detroit Lakes.
  • Feb 22-23: Northeast BLU, Palisade.
  • Feb 22-23: Southeast BLU, Lanesboro.
