Statewide and National 4-H Trips and Conferences
The purpose of Wisconsin 4-H Outreach Programs is to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding 4-H members in projects, activities, community contributions, and leadership — to encourage youth participation in high quality educational programs — and to demonstrate publicly the quality of the 4-H Program. There are six national and statewide trips offered each year. They are:
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF)
National 4-H Conference
National 4-H Congress
Wisconsin 4-H & Youth Conference
UW Madison Campus
Previous trips have included Boston, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, and other locations
Registration fees include transportation from central locations (except Wisconsin 4-H & Youth Conference), lodging, most meals; orientation and program support materials. Qualified and trained Wisconsin 4-H Adult Advisers accompany youth groups. Wisconsin 4-H Foundation sponsors a portion of the fees to decrease costs for county 4-H participants. Many county 4-H leader boards also provide local financial support; visit your County 4-H Educator to inquire. The remaining amount is the responsibility of the delegate and his/her family.
To attend a trip, youth must be selected to serve as a trip delegate and represent Milwaukee County 4-H Youth Development Programs. Youth must have a youth enrollment form on file on 4-H Online to apply. Teenaged youth Alumni are also encouraged to apply for trips. Members will be notified when it is time to register and apply for the trips. For more information about the trips that are offered please check out the Wisconsin State & National Trips brochure.
