  • CAREER PORTFOLIO

    • Due October 1, 2019
      • Career portfolios are a record of your 4-H career including personal growth and leadership experiences related to the knowledge learned, skills gained and community service/volunteer activities experienced through 4-H. 4-H members who complete two years of a project area may submit a Career Portfolio in one of eight curriculum areas.  In the near future, the Career Portfolio will be phased out and replaced by the Annual Achievement Application . Go to the Nebraska 4-H Web site for more information and to download templates.
  • Achievement Application
    • Due October 1, 2019 
      • The new Nebraska 4-H Annual Achievement Application form may be used by 4-H’ers ages 8–18 as a record of your 4-H activities. This is a condensed version and alternative to the Career Portfolio (see paragraph below). Applications from 15–19 year olds may qualify for National 4-H Conference and 4-H Congress by checking these options on the application. In the near future, the Annual Achievement Application will replace the Career Portfolio.
