Volunteer and Heart of 4-H Awards

The 4-H Council honors several individuals and businesses each year for their support of our youth program. Please contact our office with names of people you think deserve to be nominated.

4-H Council Nominations

Executive Council Members (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) are elected at the Achievement Night. By October 1, please contact a Council Member or the UNL Extension Office if you have nominations. The 4-H Council meets every other month. The President of the Council is also required to represent 4-H at six Extension Board Meetings each year.

I Dare You Award        Outstanding 4-H Member Award

The "I Dare You" Award and Outstanding 4-H Member Award are two of the highest honors given on the county level. Both awards are based on a 4-Her's activities and accomplishments. Each of these awards is given out every year. 4-H leaders, parents, the 4-Hers themselves, or a friend can submit an application for the 4-Her of their choice. Members who are 16–18 years of age as of January 1, 2014 are eligible. Applications are due October 1.

Outstanding Leader Award

4-Her's and 4-H families, here is your chance to recognize your 4-H leader and all of the hard work they do. We are now accepting nominations for the Outstanding 4-H Leader Award. Our leaders are vital people in 4-H. Anyone who belongs to our 4-H family can nominate a leader. Just submit their names along with a short story about why you think they should be chosen.  Applications are due October 1.


4-H Club Year End Reporting

Nebraska 4-H policy requires all 4-H clubs to submit an End of the Year Financial Report to account for the dollars received and expended in the name of 4-H.
Most 4-H clubs raise money to support club activities through the collection of dues or by holding specific fundraisers. Because 4-H is an educational organization authorized through the USDA, several procedures must be followed when working with a club treasury. The key point to remember is the ability to show and prove proper accountability of how club funds have been received and expended. 4-H money is public money and we are responsible for its appropriate use.

Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program

Encourages Youth to Engage in a Variety of Projects and Activities

The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program is designed to encourage 4-H youth to engage in a variety of projects and activities that will enable members to acquire the life skills necessary to lead successful lives as competent, caring and contributing citizens. The program consists of six levels that require a 4-H member to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. The program is designed to enable every 4-H member willing to exert the effort an opportunity to be recognized, regardless of how they are involved in 4-H. Participation in this program is optional.
Anyone with Adobe Reader can fill-in, save and print the pdf files. Check out Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program for more information, or contact the UNL Extension Office at 308-632-1480.
