4-H Day at the Capitol is held annually during a session of the General Assembly so that 4-H'ers can schedule visits with their legislators, serve as House and Senate pages, see top 4-H'ers honored on the floor of the House and Senate, and hear our State 4-H President deliver an address to the state legislature. There is no limit to the number of people from each county who can attend 4-H Day at the Capitol. There is no cost to attend this event; however, we do ask counties to register for 4-H Day at the Capitol so that we can:
- Purchase insurance for the event
- Have a record of 4-H’ers who are paging
- Have a list of counties and 4-H’ers who are travelling that day.
The 4-H Day at the Capitol Drop-In Luncheon, hosted by the Georgia 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees will offer a limited number of 4-H youth the opportunity to eat and meet with legislators whose schedule allows them to visit the luncheon. The limit on the number of participants for the 4-H Day at the Capitol Drop-In Luncheon is six (6) per county -- youth and/or adults. The cost for all participants in the luncheon is $8.00, excluding honorees, guests, and State 4-H Officers.
VERY IMPORTANT: 4-H Day at the Capitol and the 4-H Day at the Capitol Drop-In Luncheon, hosted by the Georgia 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees are two separate events, held on the same day near the Capitol in Atlanta. They are two separate events in Event Registration. Please register your attendance for either or both.
Registration for both events will open on January 19, 2017 at 7:00 am.
Registration for the Drop-In Luncheon will remain open until all slots are filled, at which time a waiting list will be created. Counties who do not receive slots for the luncheon can register their group for 4-H Day at the Capitol (no cost) up until the day before the event.
Important Things to Remember:
1. This event is designed for high school and very mature middle school 4-H'ers. It is important that everyone in attendance understands the need to represent Georgia 4-H well.
2. The schedule for events at the Capitol, including our 4-H President's address to and recognition of honorees by the House and Senate. We will do our best to nail down the final schedule for the day as far in advance as possible.
