Northwest Regional Representative

4-H youth in every Missouri county are represented by their peers on the Missouri State 4-H Council. The State 4-H Council is comprised of 4 officers, 4 state executive council members, and 28 regional representatives. Elected from each region at State 4-H Congress, State Council Regional Reps work with County Youth Liaisons, assist in planning and implementing statewide 4-H programs, give youth input on 4-H program and policy issues, and work to address the issues and concerns most important to Missouri 4-H youth. Applications are due January 13 to the Lafayette County Extension Center.
