The 2017 Indiana 4‑H Congress is presented each year by Indiana 4‑H Foundation in partnership with Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service and Indiana 4‑H Youth Development and with generous support from sponsors CountryMark, Ceres Solutions, Beacon Ag Group, Dow AgroSciences, Farm Credit Mid-America, Harvest Land, and the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.
The 2017 4‑H Congress Scholarship Luncheon was held October 14 at the Farm Bureau Building at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Forty-three youth received scholarships for outstanding achievement. These scholarships are made possible thanks to many generous donations to the Indiana 4‑H Foundation. The emcee for the luncheon was Kevin Gregory, RTV6 Chief Meteorologist and father of two ten-year 4‑H members. The entertainment for the luncheon was presented by the Purduettes, from the Purdue Musical Organizations.
This year, there was a special appearance by First Lady of Indiana, Janet Holcomb. Mrs. Holcomb was a 4‑H member in Delaware County and made remarks during the luncheon.
