A quick reminder that Electric Congress registration is due April 15. However, that is a weekend date so receiving the information the week of April 16 is okay. The county registration package will include the delegate registration forms for the youth and adults and an updated copy of both the 4-H Enrollment form ( or media release) and Medical Release form for the youth delegates only.  Send all the information together by mail. The registration forms, youth delegate criteria and number of adults that can attend are posted on the Electric Program website ( If you are delayed on getting updated forms for the youth let me know ahead of time, but mail all the forms together. This simplifies logistics on our end. 

Also, register your county delegation online at the link below. Even if your hard copy registration forms are delayed, most counties should be able to register their delegation online by April 15th. Additional information about the event will follow in the coming weeks. Many of you are familiar with this process, but please let me know if you have questions. We look forward to seeing this group at UNC-Wilmington in July.

Join the North Carolina 4-H Camping program for a night of fun, food and Bluegrass at the second annual Pickin in the Pines Bluegrass and BBQ benefit concert in beautiful Ellerbe, North Carolina! Featuring world-class Bluegrass acts Flatt Lonesome, Lauren & Lane and Long Gone Bluegrass, this adult-only event provides scholarships for North Carolina youth to attend summer camp at Millstone 4-H Camp. Bring your camp chairs and love of Bluegrass for an evening of LIVE music, pig-pickin', an hors d'oeuvres buffet, and a live auction. Beer and wine are included in the ticket price.

Last year's inaugural event raised enough funding to provide scholarships for 24 youth from across the state of North Carolina to attend 4-H camp this summer. There are few tools as powerful as the camp experience to positively change the lives of young people. Support the youth of North Carolina by becoming a 2018 Pickin in the Pines sponsor. We are currently accepting corporate and individual sponsorships for this year's event. As a sponsor, you will receive recognition in the event program and signage, be featured in promotional media, and receive complimentary event tickets. Sponsorships start as low as $100. Currently, we've met 10% of our goal to raise $10,000 through sponsorships to send kids to camp. For more information on how to become a sponsor, go to
