Why You Should Complete Your 4-H Career Portfolio!
Utilizing the 4-H Career Portfolio program is an opportunity for 4-H youth to exhibit an overall record of their involvement in 4-H, school and their communities. By using the Career Portfolio, 4-H'ers are able to keep a cumulative record of all their involvement in 4-H and beyond. As a 4-H member, you and your projects will grow and so will your career portfolio. This will give you the opportunity to apply for county, district, state and national awards. It all starts with you building your 4-H portfolio!
Do you plan on attending college and applying for scholarships?
How many of you can honestly say what you have done for community service in the last year? Or how many years you have brought a static project to the fair? Or, all of the extra curriculiar activities you participated in three years ago? Turns out, the career portfolio is an excellent place to store all that valuable information - even non 4-H related events! Then just a few turns of a page and you have all the info needed to complete those scholarship applications.
Did we mention that you can win a scholarship to attend the 4-H Congress?
Twenty-three state level applicants will be chosen for partial scholarships to attend National 4-H Congress. Please see National 4-H Congress for more information regarding eligibility, limitations, and other rules.
Don't forget the Diamond Clover Program!
The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover program encourages 4-H youth to engage in a variety of projects and activities that will enable members to acquire the life skills necessary to lead successful lives as a competent, caring, and contributing citizen. The program's overall goal is to provide 4-H members a rich and diverse learning experience. The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program is designed for all ages of 4-H members.
The program consists of six levels that require a 4-H member to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. The program is designed to enable every 4-H member willing to exert the effort an opportunity to be recognized, regardless of how they are involved in 4-H.
