NEWS & EVENTS
Congratulations to all 158 Nebraska 4-H members who participated in the virtual 2020 State 4-H Public Speaking Contest. The contest included speeches and public service announcements that were selected at county-level contests to advance to the state competition. Medal winners were awarded for intermediate and senior age divisions, and Champion senior participants were also recognized.
The Nebraska State Fair Board announced that the 2020 Nebraska State Fair will be a celebration of 4-H and FFA youth! While the State Fair will look different than it has in the past, we are excited to see the support for young people and to showcase the projects they've been working on throughout the year.
Due to concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, Nebraska 4-H has decided to cancel the in-person State 4-H Horse Show. Instead, a modified virtual show will be hosted allowing youth to compete from home. This will allow all 4-H'ers the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and effort they have put into their horse project. This virtual opportunity will also include 4-H Horse Stampede contests.
