A local 4-H’er, Hunter Forry, son of Jason and Misty Forry, was selected to attend the National 4-H Congress, which is being held from November 28 through December 2 in Atlanta, Georgia. Delegates to this national event were selected earlier in the year based on their documented 4-H and community achievements.
The purpose of the National 4-H Congress is to reward each delegates’ achievements; provide new and educational and cultural experiences; provide a forum for interaction and exchange of ideas among youth and adults; and encourage leaders of business, government, education, and public affairs to share in the development of youth. This year the theme of the congress is “Passport to Excellence”.
More than 1,000 youth are expected to attend the National 4-H Congress in Atlanta. Only 28 youth in Ohio were selected to attend out of more than 500 interested applicants.
