CHS Holdrege is going to have a coloring contest for local kids.  Coloring page

Please have your child color the attached coloring page and submit a photo with them holding the page on our Facebook or Twitter page.  Find us on Facebook at CHS Holdrege or on Twitter @CHSAgri

We will draw 5 names a week for the remainder of April and give the lucky winners a $25 gift card to a local restaurant.
This will not only help our local business but also give our youth something to pass the time with.
Please include your child’s name in the photo and clear picture of the colored page.

Thanks for all your support.
Your local CHS team.

Nebraska 4-H News

The last month has been a challenging time, to say the least. It feels like it was a hundred years ago that we could high five youth in an afterschool program, get a haircut, or buy toilet paper whenever we wanted. No doubt you have experienced feelings of confusion, grief, disappointment, and loss over the past month. We know that it is the same for the young people that we educate. Indeed, our world as changed.

Nebraska 4-H takes the health and safety of our community very seriously and we are carefully monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation.
Decisions about Nebraska 4-H state-level events and programs will be shared at https://4h.unl.edu/covid-19. This page shares details regarding canceled and postponed events, as well as program updates and events with no date changes.

Now in its 15th year, this table has become the standard as an authoritative reference to Bt toxins in corn. Dr. Chris DiFonzo at Michigan State University is the primary author, and questions or comments should be directed to her. If you would like to reprint the table in a local publication or  extension bulletin, contact Chris DiFonzo (difonzo@msu.edu or 517-353-5328) for a version modifiable for your state.
