In February 2021 a cohort of 4-H teens and adult advisors participated in the virtual 4-H National Healthy Living Summit.  Each year this Summit invites 4-Hers from around the country to participate in learning pathways like phyisical fitness, nutrition, substance abuse and mental health.  Something new this year was an opportunity for each state to participate in a "Dolphin Tank" experience where an Action Plan was formulated in a youth-adult partnership, and then submitted to 4-H National Council, for a chance to be awarded $1,000 to bring the plan to life.
