4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults.
4-H is education for life that uses a learn-by-doing approach.
Active in all 93 counties and at 4h.unl.edu
All youth aged 14 and 15 who work on a farm or ranch other than their own MUST be certified through a Hazardous Occupations Course. Successful completion of the course will allow trained youth to operate a tractor over 20 horsepower, or to connect or disconnect an implement or any of its parts to or from a tractor.
Cost for the training is $60. For more information or to register: https://extension.unl.edu/statewide/kearney/tractor-safety-courses-offered-0/.
Mobile iGrow Educational displays have been making the rounds to Hall County elementary schools! These hands-on displays focus on two of the mainstays of Nebraska Agriculture – CORN and BEEF. Each interactive display includes a teaching guide, hands-on activities, and an iGrow activity worksheet, targeting elementary students.
Looking for a fun adventure this summer? Consider attending 4-H Camp! Camp is a great place to meet new friends, try something for the first time, and build memories to last a lifetime!
Stop by the Extension office to pick up your 4-H Camp brochure. Camps are offered at three locations in Nebraska for youth ages 5-18. There is something for everyone!
An additional requirement for exhibitors wishing to compete at the Nebraska State Fair in either the 4-H or FFA shows is the requirement of a Premise ID number. Since the implementation of EID tags, each exhibitor will have to obtain a Premises ID number through the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. These Premises ID numbers are a required step in the usage of EID tags.
