Maine 4-H Attends National 4-H Conference

Maine 4-H Ambassadors attended the National 4-H Conference March 22nd-25th in Washington DC.  Youth selected to represent Maine 4-H learned civic engagement and leadership skills in training workshops with other delegates from across the nation.  Delegates were stimulated to think about local needs and issues in a way that promotes youth-adult partnerships.  4-Her’s also met with our state senators and legislators, and visited different government offices, during a day on Capitol Hill.
