Thank you for being a GREAT supporter of Merrick County 4-H. In 2023, we had 278 members and 62 volunteers enrolled to “Grow 4-H”! We are well on our way to exceeding that number in 2024. It is exciting to be a part of making 4-H a year-round program teaching life skills and helping youth become confident, caring and contributing citizens of good character.
4-H dues do not have to be charged in our county because there is so much support from 4-H families, county businesses and organizations. If you would like to contribute financially to Merrick County 4-H, and keep it free to join, there is a streamlined process to give three different ways. The three (3) ways you can donate to 4-H include:
Achievement Applications need to be filled out and received by 5 p.m. October 3 to receive premiums earned by 4-H youth at the 2023 Merrick County Fair. They may be dropped off or emailed to Merrick@unl.edu.
