We are excited to have you join the 4-H family in Hall County! For more information on what 4-H has to offer, check out our 4-H welcome packet (pdf).
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.
Do you enjoy working with youth? Have you considered youth development, teaching, and/or Extension as a potential career path? The iGrow Career Immersion program will provide a venue for you to experience education as a career pathway, helping you decide if you would enjoy and feel passionate about this career choice.
