The 26th Annual Animal Sciences Workshop for Youth
June 10-12,1998


    The Animal Sciences Workshop for Youth had its beginning with two young Purdue faculty in 1972.  It was their goal to combine livestock production and management with the 4-H Youth program in a way that the outcome would directly and positively benefit thousands of Indiana youth.  The concept behind the Purdue Animal Sciences Workshop for Youth not only was unique, but it also has been highly successful, educational, and youth oriented.

 

Objectives of the Workshop

  1. To develop and foster life skills through positive interaction with others.
  2. To teach scientific principles of Animal Science to young people.
  3. To increase awareness of animal industry issues among youth.
  4. To inform participants about careers in animal agriculture and educational opportunities at Purdue University.
  5. To prepare delegates to teach the concepts they learned from Purdue faculty and staff in their local communities.
