Practices will be held in May and June. Volunteer adult chaperones may be needed depending on team size. The Nebraska 4-H Premier Animal Science Event (PASE) features a variety of state-level animal science contests.

Horse

The horse industry contributes approximately $50 billion to the U.S. economy and directly impacts more than 900,000 jobs, according to the American Horse Council. The 4-H Horse Project is one of the most popular projects in the Central Sandhills Area. Along with learning horsemanship and animal science, Nebraska 4-H members practice life skills, such as responsibility, self-discipline, personal safety, goal setting, and keeping records.

Public Speaking

Communication is important in every aspect of our lives. We use communication to form connections, motivate change, and influence decisions every day. We want youth to be confident in their ability to communicate with the world and develop these important life skills. The 4-H public speaking contest is a great way to do this.
