Tune in to Nebraska 4-H's Boredom Buster Challenge for virtually guided hands-on activities. Each day, we will work on a new project and potential county fair exhibit. Boredom Buster Challenges are great for youth ages 8-18. Each session will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing. Youth do not need to be 4-H members to participate.
