Orange County was represented by 4-H student leaders Lauren Hoesli, Anastasia Smith, and Austen Stinson-Miller. This year’s theme was “A Century of Empowering Youth.”  The conference included workshops designed to develop 4-H’ers leadership skills, plenary sessions with outstanding speakers and entertainers, a Service-Learning experience during which delegates participated in hands-on service projects, as well as tours and cultural opportunities throughout the city.

National 4-H Congress was originally designed to recognize state and national winners. As the 4-H program has changed to meet the needs of youth today, so has National 4-H Congress adapted to provide a 21st Century experience for our nation’s youth. This year’s event, like the ones that preceded it, not only recognized excellence but also provided an outstanding educational opportunity for attendees.
