MORTON COUNTY CITIZENSHIP IN WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON DC TRIP
In 2018, I am planning on taking another group of youth to Washington, DC as part of this amazing program.  Youth need to be ages 14 to 19 years old. CWF participants enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at our nation's capital and the chance to meet Members of Congress; motivational speakers, educational workshops, and assemblies that increase individual commitment to citizen involvement and build lifetime skills for success; participate in activities that encourage new and lasting friendships; and an enthusiastic staff of young adults that work directly with them.

In 2016, six youth from Morton County attended this event and I think if you asked any of them, they would agree, it was a memorable trip with lots of opportunities for learning.

The cost of the trip is approximately $1700.00 plus your own spending cash and a few meals.

If you are interested in attending, please contact the office at 701-667-3340.  A deposit of $250.00 will be due by July 1 so that we can send in our deposit.
