Nebraska 4-H Month - Share Your Story!


February is Nebraska 4-H Month, and we want to hear your 4-H story! Maybe it's showing a rabbit, interview judging, or zooming down the zipline. Share a short video or photo that shows your 4-H experience using the #NE4H and #TrueLeaders. Or, if your story involves a community service project, submit your project on the 4-H Community Service Project Map and the project will be shared through the Nebraska 4-H social media channels!

We look forward to seeing your 4-H story this February during Nebraska 4-H Month!

Raise Your Hand

April 1-May 15

In 4-H, we believe in the power and future of America's youth. However, only one in three youth says they have the skills they need to handle what life throws their way. Together, we can change that! We're asking 4-H alumni and friends to "Raise Your Hand" so that more youth can benefit from the life-changing opportunities that 4-H provides.

The three states with the most hands raised will win $20,000, $10,000, and $5,000! Help us grow the next generation of True Leaders–Vote for Nebraska now!

Raise Your Hand for Nebraska 4-H

True Leaders in Service


Every day, 4-H members across the nation pledge their hands to larger service. And every day, 4-H members are rolling up their sleeves and putting their pledge into action – leading positive change that empowers their peers and their communities. This April, 4-H is launching an annual True Leaders in Service initiative in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Month.  True Leaders in Service, a month-long community service activation, will officially kick-off the first day of April, and culminate with the National 4-H Day of Service on Saturday, April 29. Thousands of 4-H members will venture out into their communities to do what 4-H members do best: they will lead in service to tackle community challenges and help meet the needs of others. 



National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world's largest youth-led science experiment. Every year thousands of youth across the country take part in the event. NYSD provides access and opportunity for kids to learn about STEM topics by participating in hands-on STEM challenges. This year, NYSD will be celebrated throughout the month of October. This year's challenge, Code Your World, invites kids to get involved in computer science through hands-on doing. 

National 4-H Week

First Full Week in October

National 4-H Week is held every year during the first full week of October. Celebration for this event can be customized specifically to your club or county. This may include planning educational events, special celebrations, community services events, etc. 

The 2018 theme, Inspire Kids to Do, will give kids more opportunities to do, empowering them with the skills they need to succeed in life and career. Join this year's celebration on social media using #InspireKidsToDo, and show us how you are celebrating locally using #NE4H!
