Youth, ages 13-19 will gather in Raleigh, NC June 13-15, 2018 to attend the annual event. The cost this year is FREE. It is limited to three youth per county. Current and active Scotland County 4-Hers will receive preference.

Through various conference sessions and facilitated discussions, delegates learn and share information related to local, state and national government as well as learn how they could make an impact in the area of citizenship. The event culminates with delegates traveling to the Legislative Building in Raleigh to meet with their elected officials and their staff. 4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus is sponsored by North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives.
