FARMINGTON — University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H in Franklin County will send four members of the Maine delegation on the 2018 Citizenship Washington Focus trip, a 4-H leadership program for high school youth, ages 14-18, from across the country.

Attending will be Allison Blauvelt, of Farmington, with Doe-C-Doe Goat Club, Bradley Smith, of New Sharon, with Dairy Club and Doe-C-Doe Goat Club, Caleb Mulcahy and Noah Mulcahy, both from New Sharon, and the Doe-C-Doe Goat Club.

While in Washington June 30-July 7, the delegates can learn about the democratic process and their role as citizens, in part by presenting an action plan on a local community issue they have identified. They also will march in the national 4th of July parade, and visit national monuments and museums.

The Maine 4-H Foundation, Franklin County 4-H Leaders Association and the Franklin County Extension Association have donated the funds necessary for these four members to attend.
