Forsyth County 4-H Delegation Attends Annual Electric Congress

A delegation from Forsyth County attended the 70th Annual 4-H Electric Congress July 11-13 at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. 155 4-H’ers, adult leaders and North Carolina Cooperative Extension agents from 47 counties attended the three-day event. Since 1947, Duke Energy and Dominion Energy have sponsored the annual congress to emphasize electrical energy concepts, conservation, and safe efficient use. The 4-H electric program is one of the most popular activities among Tar Heel 4-H’ers. The 4-H program is the youth education program of N.C. Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 232,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,563 adult and youth volunteers.
