Project Resource Central
This project reference guide lists project resources available for Nebraska 4-H members, families, and volunteers. It includes materials developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension  4-H Youth Development, National 4-H, and other universities, as well as online resources.

Most items listed are available as printed manuals, but some are avaliable in electronic form (CD, DVD, or online). All online resource links can be found on the corresponding Project Resource webpage.
National 4-H items are noted by NATL4H; these manuals must be ordered through the National 4-H mall. Unless otherwise noted, materials can be obtained through your Nebraska Extension Office, Nebraska Extension Marketplace, or this website. 4-H provides many educational projects and activities for youth; however, not all correspond with a fair exhibit.

The names of some projects listed in this manual reflect Nebraska State Fair or National 4-H names and may not match project names at the county level. If you have any questions about a project, contact your county extension staff for assistance.

Quality Assurance Training

4-H youth ages 8-18, who are enrolled in a livestock project (beef, meat goat, poultry, rabbit, sheep, and swine), are required to complete three modules in the Livestock Quality Assurance Online Course by June 15. Intermediate and Senior age youth may alternatively elect to take a test-out test. Practice test-out tests are available through the online course, however, the actual test is administered by their local extension office.

The online course has been divided into three age levels (specific age requirements are defined by your state): Junior, Intermediate and Senior. Those not completing Quality Assurance will NOT be allowed to show at the Fair.
To complete your training visit http://campus.extension.org/. Upon completion of each module, youth will be able to print a certificate of completion. Youth will need to deliver the certificates of completion to the Extension Office. There is a $5 fee to take course.  If you would like to set up a time to complete this at the Extension Office, please call 254-4455.
