Nation’s capital serves as classroom for state 4-H’ers
What do you get when you combine one charter bus, 42 excited Oklahoma 4-H club members and a handful of adult sponsors? You get the 2019 Citizenship Washington Focus trip.
Members of the Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development Program recently returned from an 11-day trip halfway across the country where they had opportunities to sightsee on the way to Washington, D.C., as well as experience the wonders of our country’s capital.
The group traveled to the National 4-H Youth Center near Washington, D.C., to participate in CWF, which is 4-H’s premier leadership and citizenship program for high school students.
Trey Roberts, a member of the Blanchard 4-H Club in McClain County, was a member of the 2019 CWF delegation. He is the son of Johnny and Jenice Roberts.
Cathleen Taylor, state leadership and citizenship specialist with the State 4-H Office at Oklahoma State University, said CWF is an opportunity for 4-H’ers to learn how to be citizen leaders and make a difference in their communities.
