2007 National 4-H Congress Delegates Announced

10/26/2007

AMES, Iowa – Delegates have been selected for the 2007 National 4-H Congress set for Nov. 23-27 in Atlanta, Ga.

 

“National 4-H Congress is an amazing opportunity for Iowa 4-H’ers," according to Brenda Allen, Iowa State University Extension 4-H youth development specialist. "Not only do youth meet delegates from across the country, they also have the opportunity to hear nationally renowned speakers and participate in thought-provoking workshops."

 

Workshop topics include team building, leadership skills and community service. Delegates are selected based on overall achievement in the 4-H program, particularly outstanding leadership and service in their local club, county and beyond.

 

Two adults also will attend the event. Coletta Weeda, Extension director of Crawford County, and Dennis Johnson, Extension director of Worth County, will accompany the delegates.
