Currituck County 4-Her’s Attend Electric Congress

— Written By and last updated by

A delegation of Currituck County 4-Her’s attended the 71th Annual 4-H Electric Congress held earlier this summer at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. NC 4-H Electric Congress is sponsored by Duke Energy, Dominion NC Power, and the NC Cooperative Extension Service. Each year the event recognizes youth who have spent the past year learning about electricity, alternative energy sources and practices, and new and emerging electric and energy technologies. In order to qualify and earn a trip to Electric Congress, youth must complete a project record (1 yr of work) or a portfolio (3 yrs of work), that details the knowledge gained from the qualifying activities and events that they participated in over the course of the year. The authors of the top two project books and the top two portfolios earn a trip to Electric Congress.

The 2018 Currituck County Electric Project Record Award winners were Elijah Campbell, and Gregory Dozier, and the Electric Portfolio Award winners were Gabriel Campbell and Armani Rascoe. Congratulations to all our honored 4-Her’s and thank you to the many parents and 4-H volunteers helping our children succeed.
