The Nebraska Association of Fair Managers will award a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H male and a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H female who are graduating seniors in the State of Nebraska and who plan to continue with post high school education. Winners will be notified by January 4, 2021. The scholarship will be awarded at the annual NAFM convention in January.  

Nebraska 4-H staff are providing a unique opportunity to help youth think about their Next Chapter while meeting others from across the Panhandle and Sandhills of Nebraska while participate in fun activities. There will be exciting opportunities for the youth starting the summer before their 6th and 7th grade year and continuing through their Senior year.

The Catch-A-Calf program is open to youth that are ages 12 to 18, as of December 31st, 2020. Youth must be an enrolled 4-H member and resident of the states of CO, WY, KS or NE.

2020 is a unique year and we are so proud of the work 4-H youth have done across the state despite challenging circumstances! Nebraska 4-H would like to honor the work youth have done by providing a platform to highlight their exceptional projects and the valuable learning opportunities they have experienced. A Nebraska 4-H Virtual Project Showcase has been introduced to provide an opportunity for all 4-H members across the state!

Nebraska Extension is pleased to present the 5th annual Crop Scouting Competition for Nebraska youth. Youth interested in crops have the opportunity to learn about crop growth & development and basic crop scouting principles.

Don’t know a lot about crops?  Ask a local agronomist to assist by providing a short lesson on crop production. You can have the agronomist meet with youth a little during each meeting or outside of the meeting. This is one way to engage those youth interested in crops.
