National 4-H Congress Application Form


You are invited to submit an application to participate in 2022 National 4-H Congress. For more than 80 years, National 4-H Congress has served as the premiere educational and recognition event for senior 4-H members. National 4-H Congress is held in Atlanta, Georgia, in late November. National Congress provides participants an exciting opportunity to explore careers, engage in a variety of quality learning experiences, and have great fun by getting to know other 4-H members from across the country. Outstanding 4-H members will be selected to represent Virginia at National 4-H Congress. Candidates for selection must be senior 4-H members in the current 4-H year who are able to demonstrate outstanding achievement as a 4-H member in the areas of leadership, citizenship, and personal development.

During this submission process, delegates will be asked to submit their cover letter, resume, and three letters of recommendation. Please make sure that you have all of these documents available and ready to upload into the system prior to beginning this application process for National 4-H Congress. Please reach out to your local Extension Agent, if you have any questions.

Virginia 4-H values the life skills that members develop through personal record keeping. The 4-H portfolio, which replaced the 4-H Achievement Record, will serve as the foundation for a 4-H member’s application to participate in National 4-H Congress. The formal process includes two steps, which are intended to provide the 4-H member learning exercises that reflect an employment application and interview procedure:
  1. The submission of a written personal resume; and
  2. An interview and a presentation of a personal portfolio

Applications are due by June 10, 2022. Do not send your portfolio to the State 4-H Office.
