A delegate from Forsyth County attended the 67th annual 4-H Electric Congress July 14-16 at Western Carolina University. Over two hundred 4 H’ers, adult leaders and Cooperative Extension agents 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 237,500 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,780 adult and youth volunteers.
