This Year's Theme & Service Project!
Tthis year's Youth First Conference theme will be "Ignite Your Potential". As with last year's conference, participants will vote for the vendor that has the best display and that vendor will win the covetedYOFI award.

In addition, the Youth First Partners have decided that this year's service project will be a benefit for Smart Beginnings Rappahannock Area. For more information on this great organization, click here. Participants are asked to provide gift cards of any amount to Wal-Mart, Target, Staples, Michael's, or AC-Moore. These gift cards will be placed on the 'Giving Tree' to be donated to Smart Beginnings.

What is YOFI?

YOFI has historically been presented to the vendor that makes the best use of the Youth First Theme. The previous year's winner gets to have YOFI next to their vendor table until lunch. The Youth First Partnership will award YOFI based on participant voting. The vendor chosen by participants to have the best display will win!
