What is Mini Congress?
Mini Congress is an event based on the Teen Congress model, just shorter in duration and for younger 4-H members. It is a 2-day, 1-night event on the UVM Campus in Burlington. Participants will have the opportunity to meet new friends, live in a college dorm and participate in hands-on workshops and fun activities.
The best part of Mini Congress is that it is being planned and run by older 4-H members who are members of the Mini Congress Teen Board. Mini Congress Teen Board met throughout the winter and planned all the workshops, activities, and a community service project.
Who Can Attend?
4-H members age 11-13 (as of January 1, 2013) may attend; however, there are only 30 spots available—so register early! First-come, first-served.
The full amount of $115 is required with registration. The registration fee covers lodging, meals, workshops and activities. Registrations are due no later than May 24.
Most county foundations offer scholarships for 4-H members, so be sure to contact your local Extension Office to see if you are eligible. Foundations will reimburse you directly if they award you a scholarship.
If you require a disability-related accommodation to participate in this program, please call the 4-H Office at 1-866-260-5603 by May 24 so that we may assist you.
