Montana 4-H Congress has been going on for over 78 years! This event includes workshops, contests, entertainment, social events, and the opportunity to recognize all State Award Winners as well as 4-H Foundation Scholarship Winners.
How do you get to Congress? If you are going for the first time, teens do not have to compete in a county competition to attend. County competitions include: Stir-Ups, Speech and Demo Day, Fashion Revue. Or create a team on your own in any of the other areas Livestock Judging, Horse Judging, Gavel Games, etc. These consist of a team. One team per area will go to Congress. If you would like to create a team, contact the Extension Office as soon as possible. If there is more than the allowed individuals wanting to compete in a team event, there will be a local competition to qualify to represent Ravalli County.
