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.
