Youth who attend a National Junior Horticultural Association annual convention must be at least 15 but not over 22 by December 31st being held. The convention begins on a Friday (usually over Columbus Day Weekend) and continues through a closing banquet the following Monday. Youth ages 5-14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The site of the convention will vary from year to year and will be hosted by a committee from a participating state and/or the NJHF Executive Committee. Youth who attend conventions are strongly encouraged to participate in one or more of the competitive activities or contests. In addition to the large number of project reports and contests that take place at a National Junior Horticultural Association convention, youth and their leaders will participate in workshops, tours, and presentations of local color.

All states are encouraged to bring exhibits and local horticultural projects for the convention hospitality room. Each delegate should also bring pins to exchange and stickers that represent their state.
