Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF)

Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is an educational conference for high school youth, aged 14-18, to learn about the legislative branch of the United States government and build leadership and civic engagement skills.

Held at the National 4-H conference Center near Washington, D.C., participants will engage in workshops and simulations, tour historical landmarks, and meet with Minnesota's congressional offices, all while meeting youth from across Minnesota and the U.S.

Minnesota participants (called a delegation) will travel to Washington, DC, June 23-30, 2018.

Registration will open Feb. 1 and close when all spaces have been filled, or by Feb. 28, whichever comes first. The cost of this experience is $1600 and can be paid in installments. A $400 deposit is required at the time of registration.

*Note: This experience is under program review and may experience changes, including being offered only in even numbered years. Please plan accordingly.
