A delegation of 18 North Carolina 4-H youth and 3 adults representing 15 counties attended the one-hundredth annual National 4-H Congress, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, November 26-30, 2021. The North Carolina delegation returned home from five days in which more than 800 youth and adults representing 4-H programs across the country gathered to participate in educational, service, and recreational opportunities.

This year’s theme “A Century of Empowering Youth” included workshops designed to develop 4-H’ers leadership skills, plenary sessions with outstanding speakers and entertainers, a Service-Learning experience during which delegates participated in hands-on service projects as well as tours and recreational opportunities throughout the city.

National 4-H Congress, a 4-H tradition for 100 years, was originally designed to recognize state and national winners. As the 4-H program has changed to meet the needs of youth today so has National 4-H Congress. This year’s event, like the ones that preceded it, not only recognized excellence, but also provide an outstanding, educational opportunity for 4-H youth.

For more information on the 4-H program in your county, please contact your local 4-H Agent. Find your local N.C. Cooperative Extension Center.

4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping 260,000 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide
