Morrill 4-H

The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has announced its second annual quick-pitch scholarship competition for students who dare to dream big and do the extraordinary to address worldwide issues.

The Nebraska Extension Special Agronomy Project gives 4-H members an opportunity to experience a crop that is grown, was grown or has the potential to be grown in Nebraska. Youth participate by receiving seed and resources to grow the crop, research traits of the crop and determine the viability of that crop in the part of the state they live. The project allows 4-H members interested in agronomy to grow something fun, new, and different. 

The Nebraska Extension Special Gardening Project lets 4-H members try their hand at growing unusual vegetables and flowers. The project allows experienced 4-H gardeners to grow something fun, new, and different while letting those new to gardening get their feet wet in this project area.

The intent of the Jarvis Memorial Scholarship is to assist women who live 3 or more hours drive from Lincoln but wish to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Applicants must reside in Love Memorial Cooperative Residence Hall on East Campus.

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.
