Local Interest

We know this year has been unique, but we also know 4-H members have been working hard on their projects all year long. We are so proud of the work 4-H youth have done across the state despite challenging circumstances. We want to honor the work our youth have done by providing a platform to highlight their exceptional projects and the valuable learning opportunities they have experienced. This showcase allows all enrolled youth, ages 8-18, to showcase a project they have learned a lot from this year or that they are particularly proud of. All projects are eligible regardless of the award they received through judging or the ability to have that project judged at the county level.

Hello Cass 4-H Community,

NEW this year - VIRTUAL lessons! Each 4-H Summer workshop will be available to you from the comfort of your home, and led by a Nebraska Extension faculty or staff member. 

We know everyone has missed each other these last several weeks. There is hope on all our horizons! You may resume your 4-H meetings as of June 15th if you follow the Current Health Measures for Cass County http://dhhs.ne.gov/Documents/DHM-SCHD-002.pdf. Some of you gather in our meeting room, we would appreciate a quick call to let us know if you are still planning to have your meetings at our facility.

If you would like to know the state-wide guidelines, here is a link for all Nebraska Counties and what their expectations are: http://dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/COVID-19-Directed-Health-Measures.aspx
