4-H Legislature and Scheduled Trainings

Who: All Pinellas County 4-H’ers ages 14-18

When: June 21-25, 2010

Where: Tallahassee, Florida

Why: A “learn by doing” experience in state government. Delegates participate in the Florida 4-H Legislature and actually experience all three branches of Florida’s government: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. Florida 4-H laws are considered and passed or vetoed in a model legislative session at the Florida State Capitol. During this five-day event, 4-H’ers will serve as Florida 4-H senators, representatives, lobbyists, reporters, Lt. Governor or Governor. Lobbyists will also have the opportunity to serve as a page and/or experience being a Supreme Court Justice, lawyer or juror. And it is fun!

Cost: $225.00
(partial scholarships are available from the Pinellas County 4-H Foundation)


If you plan on coming to Legislature you must attend the mandatory trainings where we will go over the 4-H Legislature process and familiarize ourselves with the issues and bills being discussed this year. Robert Williams from the Average Joe’s 4-H Club has graciously offered to lead the trainings.

Trainings will be held on the following Tuesdays from 6:00pm to 8:30pm at the Pinellas County Extension in the Gardenia Room.
