Nebraska

Four teens from the Panhandle are among the 29 Nebraska 4-H members who traveled to Atlanta to participate in the National 4-H Congress from Nov. 23 to 27.

They include Emily Gill of Cheyenne County; Mikaela Karpen of Scotts Bluff County; Janelle Kesterson of Morrill County; and Roy Kesterson of Box Butte County.

National 4-H Congress is the flagship event of the 4-H program. For more than 80 years, youth from the United States and its territories have participated in the youth leadership development conference. The Congress provides youth ages 14 to 19, a quality, educational and cross-cultural experience. It is designed to address the needs and issues of youth while helping to develop capable, competent and caring citizens.

Nebraska youth are selected for this honor based on their leadership, community service and educational activities through 4-H.

Conference attendees experience a variety of fun and exciting recreational and networking opportunities. The workshop presenters and speakers motivated as well as shared the most current information. A cultural evening exposed the youth to a variety of forms of the arts. The conference emphasized leadership, youth empowerment, and cultural diversity.

Delegates visited venues in the city including the Centennial Olympic Park, The World of Coca-Cola, CNN Center, the Carter Presidential Library, and the Martin Luther King Center.

All youth ages 5 to 19 can explore their interests and enhance their potential through 4-H. This University of Nebraska Extension youth development program offers projects for nearly every interest, ranging from Web design to rockets, genealogy, animals large and small, woodworking, fashion, photography, and more.
