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 (CWF) trip, a 4-H leadership program for high school youth, ages 14 to 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 to July 7, CWF delegates will 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 the four members to attend.
