Nebraska Extension in Pawnee County
Whether you’re a youth or an adult volunteer, if you’re doing great 4-H work, there are lots of ways to be recognized for it!
Pawnee Coutny Awards Application
Each youth will submit an awards packet which will include their the awards application along with either a career portfolio, record book, story, or resume along with at least one paragraph describing what they did and what they learned for each pin or award they are applying for. Applications will be judged on completeness, experiences/learning described, neatness, and creativity. Pins and awards will be handed out at Achievement Night in November.
Empower youth to reach their full potential through youth-adult partnerships and research-based experiences.
Welcome to 4-H! There is a lot to learn about how your child can be involved within 4-H. If you have any questions please contact the office to arrange a time to meet with staff or speak with your club leader.
Recently, Seneca Valley Virus (SVV), also known as Senecavirus A, has had an upswing in cases for grow finish hogs as well as in sow/boar market animals including in Nebraska. We do not known the reasons why we are seeing more cases, but this virus is of great concern because it looks very similar to Foot and Mouth Disease virus. Pigs have blisters on snout, feet and in their mouth. It is critically important that when folks are showing swine to be aware of this virus and alert their veterinarian immediately if they see clinical signs.
