4-H State Leadership Conference

    2010 4-H State Leadership Conference

    Financial Assistance Information

    Due postmarked May 15, 2010

    Revised 2-3-2010

Through gifts secured by The California 4-H Foundation, the State 4-H Office is able to

    provide financial assistance which will allow youth to attend the 2009 4-H State

    Leadership Conference, July 29- August 1, 2010 at UC Davis

Financial assistance will be allotted on an “as needed and available” basis and is not

    transferable. Delegates may request up to $330 of financial aid. Financial aid selections

    are based on:

    ? Income of the family and family size

    ? Contribution to the diversity of the 4-H State Leadership Conference (e.g. participation in different delivery modes, those requiring special needs, etc.)

    ? Extenuating circumstances such as the death of a parent, parental unemployment, etc.

    ? Preference to those not having received financial aid previously

    ? Those demonstrating an active interest in developing and utilizing skills learned after the conference

    ? Expected transportation costs to the campus hosting the conference based on geographic distance

Upon returning from the conference, all youth receiving financial aid must complete the following:

    ? Write a letter of thanks to the Wells Fargo Foundation. County 4-H Staff will collect these letters and mail them to

    the State 4-H Office in one envelope. Individual postage for each letter will not be necessary.

    ? Include a brief summary describing how the conference experience impacted the delegate and what actions were taken

    after the conference. This will be used to compile a post-conference report to Wells Fargo outlining how their gift

    was utilized, and will help to ensure future donations by Wells Fargo.

    Counties who do not send thank-you letters for each delegate that received funding will receive a bill requesting payment of

    the remaining registration fees.

Incomplete applications will not be considered. Complete applications must consist of both pages of the application. Counties

    will receive notification of funding by May 29. Please mark “Confidential” and fax or mail to:

    We offer our sincere thanks for Wells Fargo’s long-standing support of the 4-H State Leadership Conference that has allowed the State 4-H Office to offer financial aid to youth delegates since 1994. In addition, we wish to thank

    The California 4-H Foundation for its work in securing Wells Fargo’s support.
