Local Interest

Wednesday, November 4th at 10:00 AM or 1:00 PM central time. In Nebraska, agriculture is our number one industry. This cool virtual field trip allows you to talk to an Nebraska Extension Educator and learn about soils in Nebraska. Register as soon as possible to receive your kit in time.
The purpose of the website is to encourage families to engage with their children and use responsive feeding practices during mealtimes—especially now, while many families are spending more time together. We aim to promote pleasant family meals and the development of long-lasting healthy habits and stronger family relationships.


Numerous factors may cause stress for farmers. Many farmers face financial problems, marketing uncertainties, farm transfer issues, production challenges, and more.
You may know farmers and ranchers who struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, indecision or suicidal thoughts. Maybe you find yourself having to deliver difficult news to them.  We can help you recognize and respond when you suspect a farmer, rancher, or rural family member might need help.

Learn from your living room with Nebraska 4-H! Join us each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at 2pm CT/1pm MT to complete an activity from the comfort of your own home. Living Room Learning is targeted toward youth in grades 3-5 (along with their parents/caretakers!) and will provide a hands-on virtually guided activity where youth will learn more about healthy living, science, technology, and more! Each session, led by Nebraska Extension faculty/staff from across the state, will last approximately 30 minutes in length and will focus on a new activity that can be completed with materials found at home. Youth do not need to be current 4-H members to participate; Living Room Learning is a FREE program brought to you by Nebraska 4-H Youth Development.

The Career Portfolio will no longer be used.  Submission deadlines may vary.
