2018 Centennial Delegate Information - National 4-H Congress

Submitted by Sarah Keatley

The Kansas 4-H Centennial Delegates were added in 2002 when National 4-H celebrated 4-H’s centennial year. Kansas 4-H has permitted each Extension Unit to send one at-large delegate to National 4-H Congress. These at-large positions are called Centennial Delegates. Cost for the Centennial delegate will be the full amount of approximately $1,150.00 (no registration grant is offered). The selection criteria and process for the 4-H Centennial Delegate is entirely up to the Extension Unit. To be eligible, delegates MUST:

  • Have never before attended National 4-H Congress
  • Be enrolled in Kansas 4-H
  • Have a genuine desire to attend National 4-H Congress
  • Be available to attend 2018 National 4-H Congress in its entirety from Nov 23 - Nov 27, 2018
  • Be at least 14 years old but not yet 19 years old before January 1, 2018
  • Remain committed to attending 2018 National 4-H Congress once they accept the trip
  • Agree to the follow the prescribed code of conduct, realizing failure to do so may result in the loss of privileges during the event and/or in the future

Participating Extension Units will need to notify the State 4-H Office on or before May 15, 2018, along with providing the non-refundable $100.00 deposit and nomination form for the delegate. To help with planning, remember that the Standard of Excellence representatives to Congress will be named immediately following the May 1 deadline and if their name is not drawn, can be re-nominated as a Centennial delegate.
