Join Nebraska 4-H Panhandle Staff as they present 6 weeks of fun filled virtual presentations to build your skills and jump start your project list for fair!

We want to offer the same Virtual Babysitting Training to our Panhandle youth that may not have been able to get into the statewide training! 
The class will be for two days on June 8-9, 2020 but there are technically four sessions – taking a break for lunch!!

Do you have a companion animal that you have great relationship with and want an opportunity to show them off?  Look no further! 

Sign up for the Video Companion Animal Showmanship Contest for an opportunity to present your favorite pet from the comfort of your own home! From cats, rabbits, and rodents to birds, reptiles, and amphibians, 4-H youth are invited to record a 3-5 minute presentation demonstrating their knowledge about the care their companion animal requires. 

Nebraska Extension and the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture have launched a new student gardening competition to take place this summer in 2020.

New plans for the tractor safety training courses that were originally scheduled around the state, including Gering, are designed to protect the health of the students and trainers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students will take the first day of the course online through the eXtension Foundation Campus website. After successfully completing the online course and testing, the required driving test will be offered at five locations across Nebraska July 27-31, 2020.
