The Nugget in Sparks will host the 156th Annual National Grange Convention from November 15 to 19. Prominently participating in this anticipated event are High Desert Grange youth who will show off their knowledge and skills at the Voices of the Grange/Grange Speaks!! event.

Developed by Katie Squire of the California State Grange, Voices of the Grange/Grange Speaks!! will feature youth from across the nation showing off their skills and expertise in a half-hour venue similar to a TED talk. Programs within the National Grange focus on the family, especially youth, in developing their potential through dynamic programs and experiences that educate, engage, and enrich lives. The Grange is known for its commitment to community involvement providing leadership, financial and organizational strength, and the ability to make a difference in the lives of the people it touches.

National Grange convention organizers have spent the past year researching, refining, and relating their extensive agenda and activities. Executive officers, legislative analysts, communications fellows, membership coordinators, and more all have an opportunity to share what they have learned and teach those whose interests intersect with theirs. Ever mindful of the future of the Grange and the education of its children, an impressive list of workshops, Meet & Greets, officers’ meetings, off-site activities, and opportunities to work side-by-side with National officers awaits all youth convention attendees.
