Morrill 4-H

Dear Patrons and Board Members, Our office will be open starting Monday, June 15, 2020. Due to COVID-19 there will be some changes in the manner in which we serve the public. We are limiting public access to the Panhandle Research Education and Extension Center so all doors to the facility will be locked. If you need to visit the Extension office please note the following:

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.

We have been working diligently on plans for the 2020 State Horse Show.  As you all know, safety of youth and their families is our highest priority.  We are prepared and were hopeful that we could offer an in-person opportunity. Continued uncertainty about COVID-19 in Grand Island and whether or not we would get approval from the Health Department coupled with concerns from volunteers and staff and the ability to offer a high quality experience for youth, we have chosen to make the difficult decision to cancel the in-person sho

The Nebraska 4-H Online Insect Identification Contest provides an opportunity for participants to put their entomological knowledge to the test. The contest consists of insect identification and multiple-choice questions. Participants will gain knowledge about insects and entomology through this competition. This contest can serve as practice for county contests and the State Fair 4-H Insect Identification Contests

Do you know what it takes to pick the best fruit and vegetables out at the grocery store? Or do you know what judges are looking for when they judge your plants at the county fair? Have you ever wondered, what plant is that!?! We are excited to offer the opportunity to learn these and other important horticulture skills through the Online Horticulture Contest. The contest will be available June 5-22, 2020 at: https://go.unl.edu/hortcontest.
