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.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic. Nebraska Extension has canceled all in-person training, including chemigation and pesticide applicator training, starting March 16, 2020. The following website (https://pested.unl.edu/covid-19-information) will serve as a hub for PSEP-related information during the interrupted training season. We will continue to update this page as things develop and more information becomes available.
