Micah Pracheil at National 4-H Congress


Lancaster County 4-H member Micah Pracheil was part of a 13-member Nebraska delegation attending the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Ga. on Nov. 24–28. This year’s conference theme was “Unforgettable Past, Innovative Future.”

National 4-H Congress is the premier leadership event for 4-H members between 15 and 19 years of age. Nebraska delegates are selected for the trip to National 4-H Congress by submitting an Achievement Application for state competition. Micah submitted his in the area of STEM. He is a member of the Little Green Giants 4-H club.

In Atlanta, participants attended numerous educational workshops, cultural events and completed service-learning projects. Micah’s community service group volunteered with Hosea Helps.

Micah said, “National 4-H Congress was a lot of fun! My favorite part was getting to meet other 4-H’ers from Nebraska and all over the country. At the beginning of the trip, none of us knew each other, but by the end, we all got to know each other well. One of the girls in our group even said that we were one big Nebraska family. I would encourage others to fill out their 4-H Achievement Applications, so you can apply for this awesome opportunity.”
