Each labeled project will receive a special recognition certificate.
The top three exhibits will receive a special award.
All “Nebraska 150 Celebration” exhibits will be placed in a separate booth to commemorate the celebration.
NEBRASKA 150 CELEBRATION RULES
County Fair is just right around the corner. It takes over a hundred 4-H volunteers to make the fair run smoothly whether it is in a Livestock show or on Static judging day. Each club is going to be assigned a project area on judging day. You as a 4-H family are asked to volunteer at the time it works for you in your project area. Please contact your 4-H leader or the Dodge County Extension office to reserve your time slot by July 24th. You can always volunteer to stay for two shifts as well. Remember, we can also use the help of older 4-H members to move projects back to the booths. It does take all of you and your commitment to the 4-H program. Each enrolled 4-H family is asked to take a shift!

Local producers were recently highlighted in a Nebraska Farmer article titled "Rethinking Optimum Soybean Populations" by Tyler Harris.
"Over the last 10 years, trial data from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln On-Farm Research Network has shown that soybean growers can cut back on their planting populations when planting on 30-inch rows without hurting soybean yields. And although planting populations have been trending downward, Nathan Mueller, Nebraska Extension educator in Dodge and Washington counties, adds recent surveys of over 900 Nebraska producers from 2014 to show there is still room for improvement."
