4-H HORSE EVENTS – INFORMATION, FLYERS AND ENTRY FORMS

2022 Know Your Government Has Leveled Up!

This year, the 4-H Know-Your-Government Conference has leveled up!

Students across Washington state, whether they’re a part of 4-H or not, can come together to learn about and participate in the legislative process through an interactive curriculum. Friendly competition will encourage engagement with real bills, real legislators, and real civic-minded students across the state. As delegates complete challenges involving their local and state governments, they will get to attend Zoom meetings with facilitators and other delegates to play games, hear from speakers, and have their achievements recognized. And it will all come together in a culminating event in central Washington on March 5th with activities, a speaker, and a celebration. Everyone who completes at least three tasks will get awarded KYG swag–and the more you complete, the more swag you get! What is the prize for going above and beyond in the challenges? Time with the incredible core team before the event on March 5th to get a behind-the-scenes look at our conference!

Thanks to the increased flexibility that this allows, we’re opening up the curriculum for anyone 13 and older. So if that’s you, get ready to dive into the legislative process. We can’t wait to see how you all use your creativity to make the best better in your communities!
