Knox County 4-H

With the current restrictions in place throughout our region, we have decided this year to replace our face-to-face 4-H Workshops Virtual 4-H Projects.

Looking for learning opportunities you can do from home? Nebraska 4-H is now offering a variety of virtual learning experiences, such as Living Room Learning (Tuesdays & Thursdays) and Boredom Buster Challenges (Mondays & Wednesdays). For more learning opportunities you can do from home visit https://4h.unl.edu/virtual-home-learning. 

Live Experiences:

4-H members were encouraged to apply for the 2020-2021 National Western Stock Show (NWSS) Catch-A-Calf Program. One of our Knox County 4-H’ers, Layci Condon from Creighton, decided to accept the challenge and apply for the chance to show a steer at the NWSS.  She was one of 40 youth selected from Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, and Kansas to participate in the Catch-A-Calf program held in Denver, CO on January 19. Layci entered the ring with her rope harness and had 3 minutes to run on foot and chase down a calf and drag it back to the holding pen.

Mariah and Piper Dather have once again been selected to show their garments on the runway at Omaha Fashion Week that will be held on Tuesday, February 25 at the Omaha Design Center. Mariah was selected in the 4-H Division and Piper was selected in the FCCLA division. To purchase tickets, go to https://omahafashionweek.com/tickets.  Anyone planning to attend the show must purchase tickets. This is a very popular event, so it’s recommended to purchase tickets early. Congratulations to both!
