Governor's Agricultural Excellence Award
The Nebraska 4-H Foundation and the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority (NIFA) are offering the Governor's Agricultural Excellence Awards sponsored by the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority (NIFA) which recognize 4-H clubs for individual work and community service. Recognition in the form of $500 checks are issued to the club's treasury to be used as described in the award application. A public presentation of the checks will be made to the winning clubs during the PASE/Life Challenge Event on UNL East Campus. Clubs may use the award dollars for many different programs including: community workshops or conferences, club trips or tours, community improvement projects, campus visits, fair grounds enhancement, inter-generational programs, and the development of a youth council. While the majority of the clubs choose a project that benefits many others in their community some have chosen to celebrate their success by providing more experiences for club members. Applications are available on-line at www.ne4hfoundation.org. The application deadline is early March. Email applications to the Nebraska 4-H Foundation Office to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate in the subject line that it is a Governor's Ag Excellence Application.
