Celebrate all things Nebraska and 4-H through this unique virtual scavenger hunt!

Nebraska 4-H, in partnership with the Nebraska 4-H Foundation, is celebrating the Nebraska Statehood 150 with the 4-H Clover Chase. Between March 1 - August 15, 2017, Nebraska 4-H will be 

hosting a photo scavenger hunt for all 4-H members. Each participant who completes the chase will receive a commemorative water bottle and be entered to win a drone!

A Nebraska 4-H Shooting Sports Leader Certification Workshop is scheduled for April in Albion. It will be held April 1-2 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Albion. The deadline to register for the Albion session is March 22nd.

Every day, 4‑H’ers across the nation pledge their hands to larger service. And every day, 4‑H’ers are rolling up their sleeves and putting their pledge into action – leading positive change that empowers their peers and their communities.
