4-H’ers visit Washington, D.C.
Janelle Hollister, representing Delta County, was among this group of Colorado 4-H’ers who were pictured with Senator Michael Bennet. They were delegates attending the Citizenship Washington Focus in Washington, D.C. This conference draws young people and volunteer leaders from all 50 states, Puerto Rico and several Canadian provinces. They learn about the democratic process and their roles as citizens while experiencing Washington, D.C. They were able to attend bill-writing workshops, a national issues forum, mock elections and congressional sessions to help enhance their leadership skills.
