Columbia, SC – Over Thanksgiving break, SC Whitmore School student, Ashlyn Whittemore, joined over 1,000 delegates from around the country to participate in the 96th National 4-H Congress.

Conference activities included workshops, service learning projects, and other activities focused on civic engagement, youth-adult partnerships, and professional development.

National 4-H Congress, a 96-year long 4-H tradition, was originally designed to recognize state and national 4-H winners. Today, 4-H Congress not only celebrates individual achievement, it provides educational opportunities for 4-H youth. It also serves as an avenue to assist youth leaders in developing recommendations to guide 4-H programs nationally and in their local communities.

Whittemore was named a South Carolina State 4-H winner this summer based on her project work, service work, and leadership throughout her time in South Carolina’s 4-H program.

Whittemore eventually hopes to apply for the South Carolina 4-H Presidential Tray, the highest award in the state’s program, an educational scholarship that recognizes the top four Senior 4-H members in South Carolina.
