CARTHAGE, MISSOURI -

Hannah Rockers, of Carthage  Mo., was among the nearly 900 youth delegates from 43 states and Puerto Rico attending the 2017 National  4-H Congress, November 24-28 in Atlanta, Georgia.  The National 4-H Congress experience allows 4-H members from the across the country to learn new skills through workshops, hear from nationally recognized speakers and experience Southern culture. 

Selection for this trip combines scores from a written recognition form and interview.  Attendance at National 4-H Congress is a culminating event for many 4-H’ers and a highly sought after award.  Only twenty 4-H members from Missouri were selected to attend. 

During National 4-H Congress, youth participated in a wide range of educational workshops and heard from speakers such as the current Miss America.  Delegates also participated in a morning of service around Atlanta.  Activities included, working in classrooms, cleaning up parks, preparing meals for homeless and shut-ins, sorting books to send to Africa and much more.  Youth had the opportunity to tour some of Atlanta’s landmarks such as Coca-Cola, CNN, the Martin Luther King, Jr, visitor center and others. 

For more information about 4-H, visit 4h.missouri.edu or contact your local MU Extension Center at 417-358-2158.
