Last week three Caldwell County 4-H’ers attended North Carolina 4-H Congress. NC 4-H Congress is an annual educational event for all 4-H members in North Carolina to get together and learn about leadership skills, participate in many different educational workshops, and participate in the democratic process through campaigning and elections of state 4-H officers.
The first NC 4-H Congress was held in 1915 at NC State University. It was attended by 222 boys and 1 girl, then NC State was known as State College, and Congress was known as the Short Course. The name was changed to NC 4-H Congress in 1968. Congress has been held yearly since then other than cancelations in 1933 due to the Great Depression, 1948 due to the Polio outbreak, and 2020 during the Covid Pandemic. NC 4-H Congress has a rich history and we are so privileged to be able to attend.
Some events that Caldwell County 4-H’ers participated in included visiting NC State’s Campus, attending several hands-on educational workshops, cheering on our very own Zoë Smith in the talent show, attending the Clover Gala where we got to watch Malachi Schwartz be sworn in as the West District Vice
President, enjoying the Clover Lighting Ceremony, and participating in the Hands to Service Project.
We also are very proud of Addi Dillion who received the Commissioner James A. Graham 4-H Agriculture Trophy for her excellent work in agriculture and livestock at the 4-H Youth and Donor Luncheon. Trophies are presented to only three youths who have excelled in one of the following areas: Citizenship, Family and Consumer Sciences, and Agriculture. She received a large trophy that travels with each winner every year as well as a memorial plaque to keep.
We had a wonderful time at NC 4-H Congress and are already looking forward to next year!
