The Congress provides youth, ages 14-19, 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 youth are selected for this honor based on their leadership, community service and educational activities through 4-H.
Conference delegates are provided an exceptional educational experience during the conference, which includes a variety of fun and exciting recreational and networking opportunities. The workshop presenters and speakers motivate and share current and exciting 4-H information, all whiles emphasizing leadership, youth empowerment, and cultural diversity. A cultural evening exposes the youth to a variety of forms of fine arts. Delegates will also have an afternoon to 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.
