Candler County 4-H was well represented at the 78th Annual 4-H State Congress on July 20-23, 2021. This is the culminating event of the 4-H year where state finalists compete in various projects and Georgia 4-H Foundation Scholarships are awarded.
Four Candler County 4-H’ers were in attendance. These 4-H’ers not only competed in their Project Achievement areas but also visited the Georgia Aquarium and met 4-H’ers and donors from across the state.
We are proud of their hard work in meeting their goals of competing at State Congress.
