Every year, Nebraska 4-H Month brings thousands of young people, parents, volunteers, and alumni together to celebrate all the ways in which 4-H helps youth find a place where they belong. Across the state, Nebraska 4-H invites community members to celebrate:
•4-H Spirit Day on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
•Weekend of 4-H Service on Saturday, Feb. 11 and Sunday, Feb. 12.
•4-H Volunteer Appreciation Day on Tuesday, Feb. 14.
•4-H Supporter Appreciation Day on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
•4-H Professional Appreciation Day on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
In addition to celebrating, youth are invited to join 4-H and complete the annual enrollment process during February. By becoming enrolled members, youth have the opportunity to join a club, exhibit projects at the county and State Fair, participate in contests, and apply for special awards and recognition.
