Weld County 4-H is proud to announce that Andrew Littlefield has been selected to be a representative of Colorado at the National 4-H Conference! Andrew will travel to the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland at the end of March with six other 4-H members from across the state. During the week at the conference, he will have the opportunity to work with members from across the nation to develop life skills through practical application. Delegates will select an important societal topic and, through group meetings, prepare a briefing of their topic. The conference takes this one step further by then providing the delegates the chance to present their briefing to federal officials in the Washington D. C. area.
