National 4-H Congress Welcomes Ohio Youth Again

Congress attendees volunteer at a community garden.

In November, 28 Ohio 4-H members traveled to Atlanta to participate in National 4-H Congress. This once-in-a-lifetime experience helps young people develop leadership skills and increase their understanding of civic engagement and global awareness through educational programs and workshops. They heard from speakers, completed community service projects, and made friends with 4-H members from across the country.

In Ohio, delegates are selected to attend by winning an Ohio 4-H Achievement Award. Sponsors for the awards make it possible for youth to attend National 4-H Congress with all expenses paid. These donations embody the spirit of making the best better. Please join us in thanking our sponsors for the 2022 Achievement Awards:
