Five hundred teens, volunteer leaders, and Virginia Cooperative Extension agents will gather at Virginia Tech’s Blacksburg campus June 17-20, for the 93rd annual 4-H State Congress. This year’s theme, “The Path to Success, Luck Has Nothing to Do with It,” draws on the six pillars of character that are the foundation of the 4-H philosophy and demonstrates how young people can live as exemplary citizens through the life skills they learn as 4-H members.
