Due to the widespread flooding and challenging winter weather across the state, the State Fair Market Beef nomination deadline has been extended to June 15 to coincide with all other species. This deadline will be for both 4-H and FFA State Fair Market Beef animals. We hope this change will help support many of our families whose decisions may be in flux during the recovery.
National 4-H Congress is an award program which provides recognition to 4-H youth for their outstanding performances and achievements in 4-H. It is held annually in Atlanta, Georgia. Each year, Nebraska 4-H can send delegates to National 4-H Congress. This year, 23 delegates and 12 alternates were chosen to represent Nebraska 4-H at the 2019 National 4-H Congress.
Nebraska is a True Leader. The state has more miles of river than any other state in the nation and is home to the largest aquifer. Due to recent rain, snow, and natural snowmelt occurring on top of frozen ground, our state has recently experienced historic flooding in numerous counties. The need for assistance is growing. Nebraska 4-H calls all True Leaders to use their confidence, independence, resilience, and compassion, to assist in the flooding recovery efforts that are currently taking place across the state.
