Scotts Bluff 4-H

Dear 4-H Family,

It is with great disappointment that we postpone the 4-H Achievement Maskerade Event scheduled for November 1 due to the increase in COVID numbers in our area. 

We will be rescheduling soon and moving to a virtual Family Fun Night Event. Be looking for a follow up email in the near future. 

Stay healthy, 4-H Family!

The Nebraska Association of Fair Managers will award a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H male and a $500 scholarship to one qualifying 4-H female who are graduating seniors in the State of Nebraska and who plan to continue with post high school education. Winners will be notified by January 4, 2021. The scholarship will be awarded at the annual NAFM convention in January.  

 A Nebraska 4-H Shooting Sports Leader Certification Workshop is scheduled for early November. It will be held November 7-8, 2020 at the Panhandle Research & Extension Center in Scottsbluff. The early bird registration deadline is October 28th. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to become certified as an adult (21 years and older) or apprentice (14-20 years old) leader. Six project areas will be offered at the workshop - rifle, pistol, archery, shotgun, hunting skills, and coordinator.

Nebraska 4-H staff are providing a unique opportunity to help youth think about their Next Chapter while meeting others from across the Panhandle and Sandhills of Nebraska while participate in fun activities. There will be exciting opportunities for the youth starting the summer before their 6th and 7th grade year and continuing through their Senior year.

Record books help teach youth the vital life skill of records, accounting, reporting, and financial responsibility. All project areas have record books they can fill out. 4-H does not require record books to be turned in, however, there are many prizes including cash that are awarded to top books as well as many skills to gain!

County Awards

The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program is a statewide form of recognition. Participation in this program is optional. For each level, the Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover program provides a list of accomplishments from which 4-Hers choose their goals. The accomplishments are age appropriate and increase in quantity and difficulty for each level. At the beginning of the 4-H year, participants PLAN what to accomplish and at the end of the 4-H year, they REPORT on their completed accomplishments. Successful completion of a Level’s Plan & Report form results in a 4-Her earning that level of the Diamond Clover program (Level 6 also requires a service-learning project).
