Two Yancey County 4-H members attended the 2022 North Carolina 4-H Electric Congress in Charlotte, NC, July 12-14. Electric Congress is an educational event designed to recognize excellence in the 4-H Electric Program throughout the state. In this program, youth learn about a variety of topics, including: circuits, AC and DC power, electrical wiring, and more. Through participation in this program, youth learn more about electricity and its safe, efficient use, learn about energy production and conservation, and generate enthusiasm for science and technology. Electric Congress travels from region to region of the state, thus allowing for a variety of programming opportunities for everyone. 4-H members participate in educational workshops, meet Power Company Representatives, learn about careers in the energy industry, and interact with other electric program participants. Special outings are planned to help youth learn more about their state; this year youth enjoyed a fun evening at Carowinds! Electric Congress is held for county winning 4-H’ers who participate in the electric program. To attend, youth must be 11 years of age (by Jan.1st).

This year, both Yancey County 4-H Electric Congress delegates, won awards for their project work in the electric program. Benjamin Varney won third place for the Duke Energy Progress Territorial Achievement Award. Derek Heidenfelder won second place for the Duke Energy Progress Territorial Achievement Award. We are so proud of these youth for their hard work and accomplishments. We would like to thank Duke Energy and Dominion Energy for sponsoring this event and providing youth with such a fun and impactful learning experience!
