Nebraska 4-H takes the health and safety of our community very seriously and we are carefully monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation.
As United States and global health officials continue to address the spread of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 infection, health and emergency preparedness officials at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln are monitoring the situation in collaboration with our university and governmental partners. In doing our part to be responsible for convening large groups of people, we are carefully reviewing calendars and determining how we proceed with each scheduled event. This will be a fluid process as we continue to monitor all available information in the days and weeks ahead.

Presently, we have made the decision to cancel all events scheduled for March 16-29. While this was an extremely difficult decision, we are putting the health and well-being of our staff/families/youth at the forefront. From March 30 - May 9, Nebraska 4-H programming will resume in a virtual format. This includes all scheduled educational programs, competitive events, and meetings hosted by Nebraska 4-H.

The Nebraska 4-H Foundation has announced the new 4-H'ers Helping 4-H'ers program devoted to helping 4-H members and their families in times of need. Through generous donations made by 4-H families and friends, support is available to Nebraska 4-H families that have been affected by an emergency or disaster. The campaign allows 4-H members and families to give back to 4-H. When a 4-H member is in need, we want them to know that Nebraska 4-H cares.
4-H'ers Helping 4-H'ers seeks contributions from 4-H members, families, alumni, clubs, and councils. The contributions are primarily used for major disasters, such as flood, tornado, loss of home due to fire, or serious illness. When disaster strikes, no matter how large or small, 4-H'ers Helping 4-H'ers will be there to help!
4-H'ers Helping 4-H'ers funds are available to any Nebraska 4-H family who has been impacted by a disaster and has been recommended for support by a 4-H parent, guardian, volunteer, or alumni. Grants are limited to $100 for an individual and $500 for a family. There is no deadline to apply. Applications will be reviewed on a continual basis. Applications must be submitted electronically.
The Pick Your Project is an online database and selection guide for finding 4-H projects and their resources. Users can search for projects by keywords or browse by curriculum area, knowledge level, and geographic level.
