Description 

State 4-H Officers have been called to service in the Kentucky 4-H program since 1968.  Originally, just the position of president, vice-president and secretary were filled.  Starting in 1979, the position of treasurer was added.  These four elected positions continue to this day.   State 4-H Officers are elected to their position at 4-H Teen Conference and serve until the following year's conference.  In their role as State 4-H Officers, they also provide leadership to the Kentucky State 4-H Teen Council.
