Leadership Washington Focus

**Deadline to Apply- February 20!**

LWF is a 4-H leadership program for youth entering grades 7 through 9. The program will take place at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center, just 1 mile from the Washington, D.C. border. For more than 50 years, thousands of 4-H’ers have participated in our high school program, Citizenship Washington Focus and now we are happy to introduce its precursor for middle school 4-H'ers, LWF.  The program is slightly shorter than CWF but runs fairly similar.
NEW FOR 2015 – The Virginia 4-H Foundation is offering one FULL scholarship per district.  More than one youth per district can apply to attend, however only one youth per district will be awarded a scholarship.   All applicants must submit the $150.00 deposit with their application.  If awarded a scholarship, it will be refunded following the trip to ensure attendance.  Youth will be notified mid-March.  Please see the application for more information.
Middle school 4-H delegates will:
  • Build confidence in their ability to motivate and direct others in meaningful action
  • Practice effective communication with others through group discussion and public speaking
  • Work with others to create and accomplish goals
  • Develop an understanding of their own personal leadership style
  • Exchange ideas, practice respect, and form friendships with other 4-H'ers from across the nation.
  • Experience hands-on learning using the historical backdrop of Washington, D.C.



Virginia has 5 youth slots and 1 adult chaperone slot available  The deadline to submit an application and a deposit it February 20, 2015
