Garfield, Loup & Wheeler 4-H

GLW 4-H enrollment for 2018 is due March 15th. 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization focused on developing skills and knowledge in agriculture, science, citizenship and healthy lifestyles. This program aims to create positive, hands-on educational experiences open to all youth in preparation for lives as successful citizens and leaders. In Nebraska, one in three youth is actively engaged in 4-H through clubs, afterschool activities and school enrichment programs.

Nebraska 9th graders currently enrolled in 4-H (and those enrolled as 8th graders last year) will have received a letter pre-admitting them to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. With this, they will have the opportunity to participate in Next Chapter, a unique partnership between Nebraska 4-H and University Admissions that connects students statewide with the resources of the University!

We had a full house for New Family Night, but we know as much as we have grown this year, we missed several families last night. If you are interested in the information shared, but were unable to make it to the meeting, please contact the office. We have extra copies of the handouts, powerpoint and would be more than happy to talk you through the information. We are so thrilled you decided to join GLW 4-H! Now, let us help you make it a stellar 4-H year!

Looking to polish up your public speaking skills? Look no further! The GLW 4-H Public Speaking Contest will be held Thursday, April 27th at 7:00PM in the Garfield County Courthouse. This contest is open to all 4-H members ages 5-18. If you would like to register for the contest, please contact Nebraska Extension in GLW at 308-346-4200 or jschoen4@unl.edu. Details about this contest can be found in your fairbook.

Are you new to 4-H? Or maybe you were once a 4-Her, but now are returning to the program with your children? Join us for New Family Night where Steve and Jen take you through 4-H language, expectations, deadlines and rules. All are welcome to join!
