4-H members working together on Life challenge team project

Life Challenge is a two-day event designed to help youth learn about issues related to family and consumer sciences, explore career opportunities that are available, compete with other teens from across the state, and have FUN! 

Life Challenge will be held June 28-29, 2021 at University of Nebraska–Lincoln East Campus. Opportunities for youth include a foods and nutrition challenge, design challenge, and adult (resource management) challenge. Youth may participate in any or all of these activities. 4-H members may also participate in the Premier Animal Science Events (PASE) that will be taking place on campus at the same time. In addition, youth will have chances to explore the East Campus, meet with faculty members, and have time for fun with friends!

Pre-registration is required for all participants. Pre-registration is completed by county Extension offices. For more information, please contact your local Extension office.

This event is sponsored by the Nebraska 4-H Foundation with the support of the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority and the College of Education and Human Sciences.
