University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension's 4-H youth development program is open to youth ages 5-18. Emphasis is on science, ag literacy, healthy lifestyles, career development and citizenship/leadership. 4-H members learn by doing hands-on projects.

In Lancaster County, many 4-H'ers showcase their projects at the Lancaster County Super Fair -- information at http://superfair.org.
