Club Grants & Awards
The purpose of the Nebraska 4-H Foundation’s Governor’s Agricultural Excellence Awards, sponsored by the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority (NIFA) is to recognize 4-H clubs for the work of the individuals in the club and the community service work of the entire club.
This grant can be used to fund local service projects in the community or county.
All Governor’s Agricultural Excellence Award applications must be submitted by April 1. Follow the link to the application.
The overall goal of 4-H clubs is to develop enthusiastic young people who boldly take action to demonstrate life skills as capable, caring, confident, competent kids of character thus contributing to the improvement of themselves, their family, their club, their community, and their world. One way clubs might choose to measure their success in meeting that goal is their ability to gain status as a Nebraska 4-H Club of Excellence.
The Nebraska 4-H Achievement Application replaces the Career Portfolio. The Achievement Application will be used at the county level to select winners for Stanton County awards and will be used at the state level to select winners for 4-H Congress, Conference, scholarships and other leadership opportunities that arise statewide. By having 1 form that more closely resembles the kinds of questions being asked on college applications and in resumes, 4-H’ers will be better prepared to be college and job ready while keeping a record of achievements.
