The Nebraska Ranch Practicum is by far the most valuable of any Extension educational program I have been involved with.

Are you new to the 4-H program and/or need some extra guidance? This group is for parents and 4-Her members and will navigate you through your beginning years of 4-H. You will be instructed on deadlines, projects, and exhibits, guided on proper 4-H procedures all while having a great time. This special interest group will meet once a month from 5:15 PM to 6:00 PM at the Stromsburg Public Library Meeting Room. Mark your calendar for the second meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. This meeting will be covering enrolling in 4-H and selecting projects. It is our hope that upon completion of these meetings, your family will have acquired the knowledge to continue the program by forming a new club or becoming successful Independent 4-H members.
