Youth Chosen for National 4-H Conference
Submitted by: Jason Estep

At Fall Forum, four Georgia 4-H’ers received the high honor of being chosen out of thirty-eight applicants to attend National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C.  Being selected to attend this event is one of the top honors in Georgia 4-H.  The 4-H’ers chosen to represent our state are Lavendar Harris, Newton County; Mason McClintock, Bacon County; Caleb Mosely, Bleckley County; and Rhea Chawla, Hall County.  The First Alternate is Hamp Thomas, Chattooga County; Second Alternate is Avery Ray, Gwinnett County.  An alternate will be invited to attend the conference if one of the original four delegates cannot. 

 The goals of National 4-H Conference are to enhance the skills and knowledge of participants so that they can be more effective leaders in their communities, to enable the sharing of ideas, and to develop recommendations to guide the future of national 4-H programs.  The week-long conference includes workshops, cultural and historical tours, speakers, and focus group work sessions with youth from all fifty states.  Delegates will visit individually with Georgia members of the United States Congress in both the House and Senate.   The conference is scheduled for April 7-12, 2018, and the four delegates will achieve Master 4-H status upon their return.  

Please join me in congratulating Rhea, Lavendar, Mason, and Caleb – our 2018 National 4-H Conference Delegates! (pictured above, from left to right, with Associate State 4-H Leader Dr. Sue Chapman at far right)
