Volunteer Recognition Awards Nomination Resume

Now that county fair season is over and the state fair is well on the way it is time to start thinking about how to recognize all the hard work that the volunteers did over the year. One way to do that is to nominate a volunteer for the Volunteer of the Year award and the Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer of the Year. These applications are due the State Office (cjohnston1@unl.edu) by October 13. Winners of the state competition with be forwarded for the North Central award and that winner is eligible for national competition.

 

The Nebraska Association of Fair Managers will award a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H male and a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H female who are graduating seniors in the State of Nebraska and who plan to continue with post high school education.  The scholarship will be awarded at the annual NAFM convention in January. The Martha and Don Romeo Scholarship is due to the Extension Office by Friday, December 1, 2017.
