Waymaster Offers Scholarship for 4-H Citizenship in Action Program

4-H pictureOn February 18 and 19, the Kansas 4-H program will host Citizenship in Action in Topeka, a program that seeks to inform 13 to 18-year-olds on how their state government functions.

Activities include mock legislative sessions in the House and Senate Chambers, meetings with elected officials and tours of the Capitol.

For any student who wishes to apply, the fee is $170.

Representative Troy Waymaster, R-Bunker Hill, is offering a scholarship to the event for one Kansas 4-H student that resides in the 109th Kansas House District.

To apply for the scholarship, interested students should email a letter to Representative Waymaster by January 29 stating why they want to attend the event and what they hope to learn from participation in the program. Representative Waymaster's email address is [email protected]

"I look forward to hearing from students in the 109th District," Waymaster said. "This is a great learning opportunity, and as a former 4-Her, the value of what is learned during Citizenship in Action is immeasurable."

Again, the deadline for scholarship submissions is January 29, 2018.
