Congress Attendees

North Carolina 4-H Electric Congress is an educational event designed to recognize excellence in the 4-H Electric Program throughout the state. Electric Congress travels from region to region of the state, thus allowing for a variety of programming opportunities for everyone. This year’s event was held in three locations instead of one to assist with youth participation during the COVID-19 pandemic. Mitchell County 4-H members Daniel McClure, son of Holly and Will McClure, Jesse Silver and Josh Silver, sons of Amanda and Jonathan Silver traveled to Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory where they participated in educational workshops, met power company representatives, learned about careers in the energy industry, and interacted with other electric project participants. These delegates were accompanied by Steve Rowland, 4-H Volunteer, and Eve Kindley, Mitchell County Extension Director/4-H Agent.

Electric Congress is held for county winning 4-H’ers who participate in the electric program. To attend, youth must be 11 years of age (by January 1). Two county project winners, 2 cumulative record book participants, 1 electric program recruiter, 1 recruiter at-large (if selected), and 1 cumulative record at-large are allowed to attend congress per county. Adult volunteers, agents, and program assistants are encouraged to participate in North Carolina’s Electric Congress as well. To learn more about the NC 4-H Electric Program or the overall 4-H Program, please contact Eve Kindley at or call 828-688-4811.
