Lauren Prior will attend National 4-H Congress
Lauren Prior will travel to Atlanta, Ga., with other Nebraska 4-Hers to participate in the 2017 National 4-H Congress Nov. 24-28.
National 4-H Congress is the flagship event of the 4-H program. For over 80 years, youths from the United States and its territories have participated in the youth leadership development conference.
Congress provides youths, ages 15-19, a quality educational and cross-cultural experience. It is designed to address the needs and issues of youth while helping to develop capable, competent and caring citizens.
Nebraska youths are selected for the Congress based on leadership, community service and educational activities through 4-H.
Congress delegates experienced an educational program including a variety of fun and exciting recreational and networking opportunities. The workshop presenters and speakers will motivate and share the most current information in their area of expertise. A cultural evening exposes the youth to a variety of forms of fine arts.
The conference emphasizes leadership, youth empowerment and cultural diversity. Delegates visit venues in the city including the Centennial Olympic Park, The World of Coca-Cola, CNN Center, the Carter Presidential Center and the Martin Luther King Center.
