This spring, Nebraska 4-H is asking alumni to raise their hands! We believe that every child deserves the chance to succeed. If you’re a 4-H alumni or know someone who is, we’re asking for your help in spreading the word. Together we can help 4-H provide the hands-on learning that empowers kids across America with the skills to handle what life throws at them.

4-H Online Enrollment is now open for 2017 4-H year.  This will be very much like enrollment last year.  After opening into the program select that you have a profile.

Keep up on all the different programs offered in and around our county such as Emerald Ash Borer and Youth Ag Safety Day.
