Travel Expenses

Thanks to generous funders, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, meals and lodging at the National 4‑H Conference Center will be covered for participating teams. National 4‑H Council will also reimburse between $1,000 and $1,500 for travel expenses per team based on regional distance from Chevy Chase, MD. Each team will engage an Extension staff person (e.g. specialist, educator, coordinator, etc.). To demonstrate support for sustaining the work to be developed, this representative’s travel expenses should be provided by the partner institution (e.g. LGU, 4‑H Foundation, Center, etc.).
