A delegation from Chatham County attended the 68th annual 4-H Electric Congress July 13-15 at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The three-day event included over 180 4-Hers, adult leaders, and N.C. Cooperative Extension agents from 54 counties across the state. Since 1947, Duke Energy and Dominion North Carolina Power have sponsored the annual congress event to emphasize energy conservation and safe electricity use. The 4-H electric energy program is one of the most popular activities among Tar Heel 4-Hers.

The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 232,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 18 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,563 adult and youth volunteers.
