What is National 4-H Congress?

National 4-H Congress is a five-day Educational Experience held in Atlanta, GA. Congress is the premiere nation-wide event for 4-Hers to network with others from around the country, Canada, and Puerto Rico. While at Congress, 4-Hers engage in leadership, citizenship, global awareness, and inclusion. Here are just some of the activities delegates will partake in while at National Congress:

  • Educational Workshops: Varying from sessions like “Farm to Fork-Teaching as Service Learning,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Social Media in Our World,” and “The Healthy Gourmet,” there’s bound to be a state-of-the-art workshop for everyone!
  • Exploring the city: With educational trips to museums, theaters, and Centennial Olympic park, delegates will get to broaden their appreciation for the arts and many historical events in America.
  • State and Congress-wide meetings: Delegates will be given time to reflect on their recent experiences as well as put their new skills to use!
  • International Events: Let’s take a trip overseas! With a night of international dinner and entertainment, delegates will expand their knowledge on the culture, food, and art of countries from around the globe!
  • Community Service: Delegates will be split up to serve various parts of downtown Atlanta to give back and experience what it feels like to have a positive impact on a community!
  • Educational Tours: Whether delegates are learning about the hottest attractions in “Hotlanta,” exploring the CNN News Worldwide Headquarters, learning about the historical events of the south, visiting the College Football Hall of Fame, walking around the aquarium or exploring the zoo, delegates will get a little taste of what there is to experience in Atlanta!
  • World-Renowned Speakers: In previous years, delegates have heard from Miss America, top-ranked motivational speakers, Miss Delaware and alopecia areata hair loss patient, and holocaust survivors.
  • National 4-H Congress Gala: To close out the experience, delegates will have a formal dinner and ceremony with some special guest appearances.

National 4-H Congress is an experience like no other! Upon leaving, delegates will have had the opportunity to expand their knowledge about the world, the United States, and network with others from across the country. They will gain many new connections that will last a lifetime. We hope to see you at National 4-H Congress in the near future!
