Congress delegates are selected from the Nation's 2,150,000 4-H'ers through county, state and national competition. In Chicago, 180 were named national winners in 29 award programs and received $49,050 in college scholarships. The Congress is made possible by civic-minded individuals, foundations and industries who in 1955 contributed over $750,000 through the National Committee on Boys and Girls Club Work to support 4-H. This year, 110,000 4-H members will be honored through National 4-H Award Programs. The awards consist of trips, medals, watches, U. S. Savings Bonds and other merit awards.
