A select group of 8 Illinois teens and 2 adults travel to Washington, D.C. each spring to participate in this working conference.
The first opportunity to attend this trip is provided to the teens serving on the State 4-H Youth Leadership Team. Open spaces are filled by application to provide a diverse Illinois delegation that represents various areas of the state, 4-H access systems, ethnic groups, and male/female ratios.
The deadline for the trip is generally mid-December.
The trip is open to 15-18 year olds (age by January 1 of the trip year).
