Are you interested in meeting 4-H members from the nation, taking part in interesting workshops, and exploring a new area? If so, you should consider completing a 4-H Resume to be considered to attend National 4-H Congress or Conference as a West Virginia delegate.
Selection of National 4-H Congress Delegates
The selection process for National 4-H Congress in Atlanta is held during Older Members Conference in June of each year. A West Virginia 4-H Resume must be submitted for consideration to attend.
Delegation size for Congress is limited to all that apply.
Who can apply:
Youth delegates must be between 14 and 19 years old.
November 27 - December 1, 2020
There is significant cost for this event; however, most of the cost is covered through scholarship funds. We want to send the best candidates; therefore, cost should not be a factor in applying.
In general, delegates wear “business casual” attire for daytime events such as assemblies, workshops, and round-table discussions. It’s especially important to wear or bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Detailed information on what to wear will be sent to those selected.
Submit your resume by May 11, 2020 to be considered. The interview will be conducted at WVU Jackson’s Mill State 4-H Camp during Older Members’ Conference in June. Participation in the OMC national events workshop is recommended but NOT required. Interviews may be conducted over the phone and even rescheduled for another date if there is a serious reason that the applicant is not available for interview during the week of OMC. We will attempt to do all interviews during OMC week or before. However, interviews conducted after OMC will most likely only be considered for National 4-H Congress.
