4-H Intermediate Congress 2015

The dates for 4-H Intermediate Congress have been announced for 2015!  Intermediate Congress is for youth ages 11-13 (as of September 30, 2015) who are not old enough to attend senior 4-H Congress.  Intermediate Congress will be held at Virginia State University July 13-15.  The cost to attend is $90.
The mission of Intermediate Congress is very similar to Senior 4-H Congress- to provide noncompetitive educational experiences to youth ages 11-13, and the adults who work with them, helping them to develop life skills, and leadership abilities to become contributing citizens in their communities.
4-H Intermediate Congress is designed for youth who are interested in becoming leaders in 4-H.  Through fun, innovative, engaging, and interactive sessions, youth will enhance their ability to serve in local, district, state, and national 4-H leadership roles.
Registration is limited to 60 spots.  The cost is $90 and includes meals, lodging, workshop supplies, and an Intermediate Congress t-shirt.  Limited financial assistance is available upon request; you must meet certain guidelines for eligibility.
If you are interested in attending Intermediate Congress, please contact the Extension Office for more information.
