The sessions were designed to give young people an insight into the meaning of citizenship and to strengthen undei-standing of American heritage and freedom, economic systems, the principles, processes, and structures of the federal government, and also the Bicentennial . These programs were filled with listening, learning, sharing, and tourint,,
The most interesting part of the week was spending a day on Capitol Hill, meeting with Senators Mike Mansfield and Lee Metcalf, and Representatives John Melcher and Max Baccus.
We went on field trips to historic and cultural sights such as Gettysburg, Presidential Monuments, and the Sm'thsonian Institute." Citizenship '75 is conducted by the National 4-H Foundation in behalf of the Cooperative Extension Service. You can learn more about 4-H by calling 787-5312.
