North Carolina 4-H Congress is an annual state event held at NC State University where 4-Hers from across the state come together to celebrate their accomplishments. State competition for presentations, scholarships, national 4-H award trips, and the state 4-H officer elections all take place during the week. Congress is typically the highlight of many 4-Hers’ experiences and a great way to meet new friends from the District and other parts of the state.
The dates for 4-H Congress this year are June 22-25, 2013. We are still making arrangements and will either stay in a Raleigh hotel or the dorms on NC State’s campus. For full-time participants (Friday night – Tuesday) registration and lodging will be approximately $280.
Youth must be 13 years old as of January 1, 2013 in order to participate in Congress. If you are interested in attending the trip, please contact Holly Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (828) 255-5522 ASAP to receive more details. Holly will be chaperoning the trip and transporting our Buncombe County delegation to Raleigh in the state van. Priority for registration and van transportation will be given to those youth who participate in County 4-H Presentation Day and those who are active in our 4-H County Council.
All registrations and payment deposit for Congress are due to Holly no later than Friday, May 17th. No late registrations will be accepted!
