2013 State 4-H Congress Delegates

 “What Is Hidden Beneath Your Mask?  Unmasking The Real You” was the theme for this year’s State 4-H Congress held on the campus of Clemson University.  For four days, July 17-20,  over 100 outstanding 4-H teens and volunteers celebrated their involvement and achievements in South Carolina 4-H.  The Lexington County delegation included  two 4-Hers from the Lexington County 4H Horse club—Erica Jones and Mattison Caughman

 Throughout the State Congress, participants listened to energetic speakers, attended workshops,  participated in community service projects,  learned about being good citizens and met the Clemson Tigers’ quarterback Tajh Boyd.


4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
