Citizen Washington Focus (CWF) program registration opens in February!

We encourage 4-H'ers to apply to the Citizen Washington Focus (CWF) program! Held in the National 4-H conference Center near Washington, D.C., this is an educational conference for high school youth, aged 14-18, to learn about the legislative branch of the United States government and build leadership and civic engagement skills. Application information will be posted on January 10, 2018 and registration opens February 1, 2018.

Minnesota participants (called a delegation) will travel to Washington, D.C. on June 23-30, 2018. The cost of this experience is $1600 and can be paid in installments. A $400 deposit is required at the time of registration.

Although Urban 4-H is not holding a fundraising cohort this year, we are available to provide support in the application process. Ramsey County 4-H will also provide a $150 scholarship for Ramsey County 4-H youth attending the trip.
