They were two of 18 leaders from Nevada participating in the conference, designed to help volunteers enrich leadership skills to improve local 4-H programs. More than 600 leaders from 13 Western states, Canada, Guam, American Samoa and Micronesia attended. Workshops covered a variety of topics designed to further the effectiveness of 4-H in meeting the needs of youth in the '90s. One of the most productive parts of the conference according to Smith was the exchange of ideas and the testimonials with other leaders and their experiences what they gained personally and what they were able to return to the community s 4-H Leaders. At the Forum Cadamagnani was awarded the Teen Pinnacle Award, given tbr her outstanding leadership and citizenship abilities within her community, county and state. Thank you to The Station House for providing playing cards as souvenirs to share at the conference. Appreciation was ex- pressed that the cards read "Tonopah, Nevada."
