πŸ€ Nov. 6 & 7 (woops, forgot yesterday!): Although it wasn’t expected due to weather, we are so thankful for Joe and those shooting sports families that came to help clean up and make improvements to the Elko County Shooting Range! Thank you to Komatsu for the use of the equipment and to Joe for running it. They improved numerous safety berms, added new shooting berms, cleaned trash, and built up the archery berm so it’s bigger and better. Thank you all!! πŸ§‘πŸ’š

Liz’s 4-H story!

πŸ€πŸ§‘ I was involved in Elko County 4-H for 5 years as a youth. I participated in sheep, rabbits, poultry, dog, and Fashion R***e. Joining 4-H allowed me to find a voice I never knew I had and make friends that I never would have met otherwise. My 4-H experience inspired me to make many of the decisions I made later in life, throughout my career, and I am so honored to have the opportunity to work with our awesome Elko County 4-H youth!! πŸ§‘πŸ€

πŸ€Share your 4-H story below in the comments! πŸ€

Calling all Nevada 4-H'ers!

We need your help with a promotional video that is being created to highlight our amazing youth! We are asking families to grab their camper or cell phone and capture a 20 to 30 second video of your 4-H'er doing an activity that they might want to do in the future. Our theme is "What does your 4-H'er want to do for Nevada?" Examples of things that youth can be doing are: building a future building out of blocks, standing with tools next to her's dads truck that needs fixing, using a computer to fix the next problem, grooming a horse, weeding the garden to help grow future crops, etc.

We would like to have the youth in some type of 4-H attire (shirt, hat, scarf, etc.) so that the 4-H Clover is visible in the video and we want to see their face!

An email was sent out to all families tonight (August 6th) but there was an error on the due date-they are due by August 12th. Videos can be uploaded to the following link:

If you have questions, please email [email protected].

πŸ€πŸ˜˜You are not alone when it comes to your mental health! πŸ€

Mental health is defined as a state of well-being when someone reached their own potential, can cope with the everyday stresses in life, can focus on their own work and get it done, and can make a contribution to their community.

Mental health can be visualized as a continuum where some days are better than others! Just like physical health, it is important to check in with yourself or with a professional from time-to-time, the same way you would see a doctor for a cough or backache!

Photo: 7 out of 10 teens are struggling with mental health; 81% of teens say mental health is a significant issue for young people in the U.S.; 65% of teens say uncertainty about the future makes them feel anxious or depressed. You are not alone!
