Surry County 4-H Delegation Attends Electric Congress

— Written By

A delegation from Surry County attended the 68th annual 4-H Electric Congress July 13-15 at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. 180 4‑H’ers, adult leaders and N.C. Cooperative Extension agents from 54 counties attended the three-day event. Since 1947, Duke Energy and Dominion North Carolina Power have sponsored the annual congress to emphasize energy conservation and safe electricity use. The 4-H electric energy program is one of the most popular activities among Tar Heel 4-H’ers. The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina 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.
