4-H Congress Information Has Been Released

4-H Congress information has now been released!!! Contact the Extension Office today for a delegate packet. State 4-H Congress is the premier teen event for Virginia 4-H. Delegates must be at least 14 by 9/30/09. Congress delegates stay in the dormitories at Virginia Tech, and enjoy a number of educational and social events. Nationally-known guest speakers present at Congress, state competitions are held during Congress, and delegates have the opportunity to take workshops from a variety of experts in a number of categories. There are two dances during the week, a midnight pizza party, and district Olympics. In addition, State 4-H Cabinet positions are elected during Congress. This is a WONDERFUL event for TEENS ONLY. I hope you will consider going. (As a 4-H'er myself, I met people and made lifetime friends at Congress that I continued to keep in touch with in college and beyond.) Go, go, go!!!
