Best Dressed Critter Contest Application

4-H members in Northeast Nebraska do not need to put their goals on hold this summer because of social distancing.

Nebraska Extension 4-H staff from around Northeast Nebraska will be presenting a smorgasbord of fun-filled virtual presentations to help 4-Hers build their skills and jump start their projects for county fair. Extension educators, 4-H assistants and 4-H staff created a list of virtual workshops allowing youth to continue to be involved in 4-H without face-to-face contact.

If you will be 14 and not older than 18 on or before December 31, 2020, you are eligible to participate in the trip. This trip is a multi-county trip of 4-Hers in the Northeast Extension District. The tentative dates of the trip are Thursday, June 10 through Saturday, June 19, 2021. These are tentative as schedules may change, but based on trips we have taken in the past, we try to book similar dates every three years.
