(Neb.)-4-H Celebrates Nebraska’s 150th Birthday With Clover Chase

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/17/2017 04:12 PM

(Neb.)-Nebraska is commemorating its Sesquicentennial - the 150th anniversary of statehood - throughout 2017 with a yearlong celebration involving a wide variety of programs and events across the state.

One of those is for Nebraska 4-H youth and volunteers in all 93 counties:  the 4-H Clover Chase. An official Nebraska 150 Celebration event, it was developed by Nebraska Extension 4-H Youth Development partnership with the Nebraska 4-H Foundation.
The 4-H Clover Chase began March 1 and runs until August 15. It is an original event, an interactive scavenger hunt, created just for those engaged in 4-H and the Nebraska 150 Celebration.

It encourages a connection to Nebraska’s history and heritage while fostering a spirit of community involvement and enrichment. The most exciting part is that participants will get to see Nebraska through the eyes of 4-H youth.
4-H Clover Chase participants begin by downloading an app that contains a list of over 25 specific challenges such as taking a photo of a local celebrity, a leading industry, or the tallest building in the county.

Participants have 150 days to complete the “chase” and submit scavenger hunt photos that will be displayed in the 4-H building during this year's Nebraska State Fair and on social media using #NE4HChase.
Each participant who completes the chase will receive a “4-H Clover Chase” commemorative water bottle and will be put into a drawing to win a drone with video capability.

There's even a competition at the county level with the Extension Office having the highest percentage of participation winning a free National Youth Science Day kit.

 For more information about the 4-H Clover Chase, contact Nebraska Extension Dawes County at 308-432-3373 or go to http://4h.unl.edu/clover-chase.
