2021 Virtual Summer Projects and Instructions are available NOW…….

Nebraska Extension educators, 4-H assistants and 4-H staff from around Northeast Nebraska will be presenting a smorgasbord of fun-filled virtual presentations to help 4-Hers build their skills and jump start their projects for county fair.

The project list is available at https://uofnelincoln.sharepoint.com/:f:/s/msteams_f722e6/Ejk0Tx2NNRBAgrscmhXINjEBGgv4mz4eCcLnVj0XwnQ_sA?e=hfx0W6

These classes may be shared with anyone - not just 4-H members and are all free to use. Although they are designed to help 4-H members create projects that can be entered in county fairs, they are also open to non-4-H members so they can get an idea of what 4-H has to offer by way of building skills for future hobbies or careers. There are a wide range of lessons for both boys and girls and all age groups.

Each lesson has the contact person for more questions if you should have them. That presenter will serve at the primary contact. Each lesson will have information about what 4-H Project/Exhibit/Class that is relevant for county fair entries.

Youth can complete the activities at home, with supplies they obtain locally or, within their home. Each workshop is designed to help youth learn more about the topic, and also has a direct tie to a project from the statewide list of fair-approved projects. 4-H members can complete those projects during the class or have the tools to start and finish on their own time.

For fair-bound projects, parents will need to sign their youth up on 4hOnline in that project area to ensure that they can take their project to the fair this year.

We hope you enjoy the virtual catalog of offerings.

Living Room Learning+

Living Room Learning is back for the summer of 2021 – and it’s a plus for everyone!

Living Room Learning+ offers hands-on, virtually guided activities for youth. Each session focuses on a new activity that can be completed with inexpensive, easy-to-find materials. The finished project may be showcased as an exhibit at a local county fair (optional). A career connection to the project will also be made. Each session will be recorded and made available on-demand. Youth do not need to be 4-H members to participate.
