Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF)
We have exciting news! We are now planning for an in-person CWF 2022! Many things are changing within the programming schedule and event place. As some of you know the National 4-H Center has been sold or is in the process. Therefore, CWF will no longer be held there but will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, Maryland. This event center is not far from where we previously have been, but we will forever miss our own 4-H Center.
In 2020, CWF was canceled due to the pandemic, and the 2021 program was held virtually. We as a state did not participate in the virtual 2021. We still do, however, have a list of participants that have never been able to go on the trip. This list is currently being contacted to see if they are still enrolled members wanting to participate. Once those numbers have been finalized, we will open up the list to “fill the bus” for 2022. All delegates must be currently enrolled and between 14-18 years old as of January 1, 2022.
We have held records of who in the past has paid monies and are also working that through. The total cost for this year’s trip will be available very shortly. A note will be going out to your local office with all information and please note: we will be on a short timeframe to get delegate information in. The date that has been reserved is June 25-July 1, 2022. We will be leaving on a Saturday and coming home on the following Friday. As always in today’s world, all plans are Covid sensitive but as the true 4-Hers that we are, we adapt! If you have questions, please feel free to email Heidi Palmer, State Activities Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
