Washington County Extension is encouraging young females in the area to attend a career conference with dates October 14th through the 28th. Washington County 4-H Youth Coordinator Kati Peiffer says the goal of the “Taking The Road Less Traveled” conference is to engage girls in 6th through 12th grade to increase their awareness of “career opportunities with science, technology, engineering and math.”  More than 2,500 girls participate in the program each year, with three separate October conferences based on the age of attendees.  For more information, call Carol Heaverlo at 515.294.5883 or email heaverlo@iastate.edu.
