Spend the afternoon on Saturday, April 29th from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm engaging and interacting with science! See new technology and challenges up close while you solve problems.  Sessions include:

Zoom @ Noon is a new way for 4-H families to connect with 4-H staff each month, ask questions, and hear the latest updates. Have questions about a contest? Need help with your fair registration? New to 4-H and need support? We’re here for you!  Connect with us wherever you are using your computer or mobile device. Click on the link and join the conversation.

The first time you join you will need to download what is referred to as the “Zoom Launcher Plugin.”  When you click on the link for the meeting, the launcher download should start automatically and walk you through the steps.  You do not need to create an account or profile to join.

An additional requirement for exhibitors wishing to compete at the Nebraska State Fair in either the 4-H or FFA shows is the requirement of a Premise ID number. After the implementation of EID tags last year, each exhibitor will have to obtain a Premises ID number through the Nebraska Department of Agriculture in 2017. These Premises ID numbers are a required step in the usage of EID tags.  An exception was made by NDA in 2016 in regards to the Premise ID numbers as the transition was made to EID tags.

Norovirus is a highly contagious virus. Those who contract this nasty bug may experience gastroenteritis, inflammation of the stomach and intestines. This leads to diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.

It only takes a very small amount of the norovirus particles to make you sick and it can spread easily in enclosed places such as day care centers. This training is designed to teach all child care providers on the importance of the proper way to clean up bodily fluids to avoid spreading disease.
