Elected from each region at State 4-H Congress, Missouri's State 4-H Council works with county youth liaisons, assists in planning and implementing statewide 4-H programs, gives young people input on 4-H program and policy issues, and works to address the issues and concerns most important to Missouri 4-H youth.
