Expanded Food & Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP),
Teen Winter Retreat,
Van Wert County,
Gallia County Scholarship,
Warren County Fair,
An exciting time in our country’s history comes every four years when the President is sworn into office. The inauguration is a perfect time to spark a youth’s interest in government and history. A chartered bus will deliver us to the National 4-H Conference Center for our four-day stay.
Trip Dates: Saturday, January 19, through Tuesday, January 22.
Staying at: National 4-H Youth Conference Center, Chevy Chase, MD
4-H’ers will be involved in educational programs focused on government and the history of past inaugurations. Teens will have the opportunity to tour national monuments, museums, and possibly the USDA and the Capitol. Members will also complete a service project. What better way to learn about government and history, but to take a road trip and live it?
Maximum cost per participant is just $400, but this cost will be reduced if our application for funding from the Ohio 4-H Foundation is approved. Fee includes bus transportation, accommodations at the National 4-H Center, most meals, and even an Inaugural Ball at the 4-H Center! This trip is targeted to youth of 4-H age. 4-H'ers in 3rd through 8th grade must be accompanied by an adult. Adults attending may need to complete the OSU volunteer screening process, which includes a BCI background check.
