National 4-H Congress

For more than 99 years, National 4-H Congress has been a premiere nation-wide opportunity for 4-H members across America.  Originally held in Chicago, the event is now held in the “Capitol of the South,” Atlanta, Georgia during the Thanksgiving break. National 4-H Congress is a five-day event that engages high school aged 4-H members in leadership, citizenship, global awareness, and inclusion.  Participants not only have the opportunity to participate in state-of-the-art educational workshops and hear from world-renowned speakers, they also have the opportunity to network with other 4-H members from across the United States.

Ohio 4-H annually selects its delegates through the Ohio 4-H Achievement Awards. Contact your county educator to learn about filling out an Achievement Record Form. Forms are due at the state level in February (but may be due earlier in your county) and winners are selected and notified in the spring.
