The annual Fort Robinson 4-H Horse Camp forms have been released.  Fort Robinson 4-H Horse Camp is on June 10-12, 2021! The forms include: program, registration form, and scholarship application. They can be found here: https://extension.unl.edu/statewide/northernpanhandle/fort-robinson-4-h-horse-camp-0/. If you have questions, call the Dawes County Extension Office at (308)432-3373.  

The Dawes County Agricultural Society has chosen the theme, “Get Out of Your Shell at the Fair,” from a group of 72 entries received in the 2021 Fair Theme Contest.  Harper Watson, ten year old daughter of Ben and Saphron Watson of Chadron, submitted the winning drawing.  Harper will receive free passes for her family to all events at the 2021 Dawes County Fair. Her winning drawing will be used for promotional material advertising the Dawes County Fair July 29-August 7. We can’t wait to see you Get Out of Your Shell at the 2021 Dawes County Fair!

Using the searchable, web-based 2021 Pick Your Project, users will be able to search for projects by keywords, curriculum areas, knowledge levels, and geographic levels. It is the intent that this feature will assist 4-H youth, volunteers and families with learning about the project opportunities using the Pick Your Project and then locating the same project in 4HOnline. Enhancements for the future of the web-based Pick Your Project continue, and its integration with the new 2021 Nebraska State Fair book will be shared soon!
