The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover program encourages 4-H youth to engage in a variety of programs, projects, and activities that will enable youth to acquire skills and abilities that will prepare them for success in the future. The program is designed to reach and recognize all youth engaged in 4-H.

The program consists of six levels that require a young person to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. For each level, the Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover program provides a list of accomplishments from which 4-H youth choose their goals. The accomplishments increase in quantity and difficulty for each level.

The Nebraska 4-H Achievement Application is a standard application form used for the selection of county and state award winners, including Nebraska delegates to National 4-H Congress and National 4-H Conference, as well as Nebraska 4-H Foundation scholarship award recipients. The forms can be found here: https://4h.unl.edu/achievement-application.

All 4-H members in Lincoln County who are Seniors & will be graduating in 2022 are encouraged to apply!

Items that must be completed are the Lincoln County 4-H Council Scholarship Form & the 4-H Achievement Application (https://4h.unl.edu/achievement-application). If you are applying for State Level awards or scholarships I need the full application found at the above link filled out and returned by October 22.

Upon completion of a School Enrichment Project lead by staff from the Lincoln-Logan-McPherson County Extension Office, we encourage you to create an exhibit about what your class learned for the 2022 County Fair.
