Sarah Farlee, a member of the Shiloh 4-H Club in Rockingham County, attended the 10th annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners Youth Summit, held Aug. 23-24 in Greensboro.

North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the 10th year with the NCACC on a multi-year initiative to increase youth involvement in county government. This initiative helps youth learn more about county government as well as how to become more involved in local decision-making.

Seventy-seven youth and adults from 66 counties were represented during this event.
