4-H to hold i-Congress

Virginia 4-H in conjunction with 2020 Congress across the commonwealth will hold a virtual i-Congress for youth ages 11-13 from July 13-30.

The i-Congress program, held by Virginia 4-H at Virginia State University, is a summer program for middle-school children interested in becoming 4-H leaders, and is designed to foster leadership skills.

The highly-acclaimed program features interactive hands-on activities, public speaking contests and fun and educational workshops. Youth will engage in virtual workshops on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Math) topics, leadership, team building, networking skills and college life. The cost is $5 per participant. T-shirts may be available for an additional fee.

Registration will open in the next couple of weeks. Anyone interested in being notified when registration opens, please provide your contact information at www.ext.vsu.edu/4h-icongress. Providing your contact information only means you will be notified when the i-Congress registration is open. It does not confirm registration in the program itself. If you have any questions or need more information about the program, please contact Dr. Maurice Smith (mdsmith@vsu.edu) or Dr. Chantel Wilson (cwilson@vsu.edu).”
