This month we would like to congratulate the Lucky Sprouts 4-H Club for being awarded the Nebraska 4-H Club of the Month for March 2018. This club from Aurora, in Hamilton County, has truly made a difference in its community. The club is dedicated to building strong citizenship and teamwork through various activities.
Omaha Fashion Week's Spring 2018 Student Night was held on February 27th with over 600 guests in attendance. The runway show was kicked off by a colorful, fashion-forward collection of work by Nebraska 4-H youth. Each garment was modeled by the 4-H member who designed and constructed it, and 4-H members were praised for their advanced construction techniques and finishing details.
