Photo caption: Photo courtesy of UN-L Extension OfficeEvery 3 years a group of 14-18 year old youth from the area participate in a Citizenship Trip to the East Coast. Here, the 2013 trip members are learning about the battles in and around Gettysburg. Youth on the trip visit Washington D.C. Gettysburg, Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Amish Country, New York City, and Niagara Falls as part of the 14 day trip.

Coinciding with February being 4-H month in Nebraska, youth are being encouraged to check out the more than 100 different projects available through 4-H in Nebraska, and become part of something interesting and valuable.

Its a time to get the word out about 4-H, and get the youth and families who arent already involved in the program, to be involved, said Crystal Fangmeier, University of Nebraska extension associate for the Southern Plains Unit of Thayer county and Nuckolls county, based in Hebron.
