4-H Day at the Capitol

The 4-H Day at the Capitol Program provides youth with an opportunity to learn more about their state government and experience the political process first hand. 4-H members are highly encouraged to make an appointment with their representative, senator, or a legislative aide to talk about how the Florida 4-H Program has impacted their lives. During the day, participants will hear from public officials, participate in educational workshops, and see their legislators in action.

The 4-H Day at the Capitol Guidebook is now available. Please reference the guidebook to find out more about dress code, schedule, activities for your delegation, and scheduling an appointment with your legislators.

Appointments with your legislators should be made prior to coming to 4-H Day at the Capitol.
