The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program is designed to encourage 4-H youth to engage in a variety of projects and activities that will enable members to acquire the life skills necessary to lead successful lives as competent, caring and contributing citizens. The program's overall goal is to provide 4-H members a rich and diverse learning experience. The program consists of six levels that require a 4-H member to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. The program is designed to enable every 4-H member willing to exert the effort an opportunity to be recognized, regardless of how they are involved in 4-H. Applications are due to Organizational Leaders on the date set by them. Club Leaders will evaluate the applications and submit them to the Extension Office on or before 5:00 p.m., September 16, 2020.  


ACHIEVEMENT APPLICATION

The Achievement Application provides an excellent opportunity for 4-Hers to keep track of what they have participated in, given leadership to, and learned through 4-H. Completing the application and submitting it to your Organizational 4-H Club Leader and the Extension Office allows 4-Hers to receive a premium. Youth will be recognized at the Achievement Program. The application may be submitted in an official 4-H Notebook cover, 3 ring binder, or electronically and is due by 5 p.m., September 16.  Premiums will be included in the Fair Premium checks.

Youth 15 years of age and older can compete at the state level for an opportunity to represent Nebraska at National 4-H Congress or National 4-H Conference. These leadership opportunities are held once a year in Atlanta and Washington DC. You must identify a program area (Agriculture, STEM, Leadership and Entrepreneurship, Healthy Living, or College and Career Preparation for My Future) to apply.

Note: Do not include ID sheets, ribbons, newspaper clippings, record book comment sheets, entry tags, programs, score sheets, etc.
