Below are updates for programming for the 4-H Companion Animal program that we would like for you to share with your horse families.

Companion Animal Challenge
Due to COVID-19, the University has taken measures to help protect the UNL community and broader community. To decrease large group gathering instances, we have decided to continue the Companion Animal Contest through remote means. Youth will need to re-enter if they were previously entered for Companion Animal Challenge by using the new entry form (online) through Google Docs.
The event will return to its regular format for 2021.
