4-H Congress

Emily Allison, Audrey Ferrie, and Brielle Whitney represented Warren County 4-H at the 96th National 4-H Congress in Atlanta, Georgia. The three delegates traveled with 21 additional members from Western Pennsylvania. On Thanksgiving weekend, more than 1,000 delegates from throughout the United States and its territories joined Audrey, Brielle, and Emily in Atlanta to participate in 4-H Congress. The program was a mix of education, service and recreation. The theme was Be True, Be You and the 4-H members immersed themselves in leadership skill development and service learning opportunities.

The history of the National 4-H Congress goes back more than 90 years. An educational tour to Chicago was the forerunner to what would eventually be known as today National 4-H Congress. The 4-H organization differs in each state. As the three Warren delegates explored the variety of ways in which states conduct their 4-H programs. Audrey, Brielle, and Emily arrived home with new ideas on how they could extend the reach of the Warren County program.

The trip was made possible through the support of the Mr. Robert W. “Bud” Holder Fund which was established in 4-H program in the early 1990’s.

Mr. Holder was the second owner of Crossett Inc. and valued the leadership development of the Warren County youth.

The 4-H program is a youth development program of Penn State Cooperative Extension. It is open to all youth between the ages of 8 and 18, without regard to ancestry, color, disability or handicap, national origin, race, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, or place of residence.
