Dawson County 4-H - making the best better!


raised by 12 people

$4,000 goal

Dawson County 4-H has had another good year. 4-H members took part in many traditional 4-H programs such as a speech contest, presentation contest, clothing construction & fashion show, sheep lead contest, ID & judging contests, and state and national contests. The Dawson County Fair was a fun time to participate in livestock shows, static exhibits, and helping out in the 4-H cafe. 169 exhibitors entered 641 static exhibits, 434 livestock exhibits, and 90 youth participated in shooting sports.

Shooting sports were a highlight of the year, with 90 youth competing in 23 divisions and six disciplines which included: small bore rifles, shotgun, BB gun, air rifle, air pistol, and archery. One youth competed in the National Shooting Sports Championship in Grand Island, 15 youths competed in Nebraska State 4-H Shooting Sports events, and 78 youth competed in the Dawson County Shooting Contests.

The 4-H motto, "To make the best better," drives 4-H members and caring adult volunteers to achieve their goals to the highest standards. Dawson County 4-H offers nearly 160 projects that youth can participate in, whether in a club environment, after-school session, school enrichment, or on an individual basis. Skills learning through 4-H participation helps youth become better members of their families, communities, and the world. Youth ages 5-19 may become members to do a variety of projects, community service, and social learning "To make the best better."

With donor assistance this year, scholarship money will assist youth participating in the Dawson County 4-H camp at Camp Comeca, National Meats Judging & Skill-a-thon trips, National 4-H Congress & Conference trips, and State & National shooting sports events.

4-H is the United States' largest youth organization. 4-H is one of a kind! Your support of the Dawson County program is greatly appreciated.
