2022-2023 4-H Fair Book

The 2022-23 Nemaha County 4-H Fair Book is now available online!   We hope to have printed copies available in the office in early June.

Welcome 4-H members, parents, leaders and friends to participation at the Nemaha County Fair.  4-H will be presented through exhibits and/or participation by members in many programs. To youth, fairs mean exchanging friendships and new adventures, families working together, and recognition and evaluation feedback of individual and team efforts. All 4-H exhibits at the Nemaha County Fair are products of members' participation in 4-H programming. We invite you to visit the 4-H exhibits and participate in programs. For more information about 4-H and University of Nebraska – Lincoln Extension contact the Nemaha County Extension Office at 402-274-4755.
