Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program
The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program encourages 4-H youth to engage in a variety of projects and activities that will enable members to acquire the life skills necessary to lead successful lives as competent, caring and contributing citizens. The program's overall goal is to provide 4-H members a rich and diverse learning experience.
The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program is designed for all ages of 4-H members. 4-H members may begin participation in the Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program at any time of the year.
To begin the Diamond Clover Program, a 4-H member must complete the Plan portion of the Plan & Report form. This is saved and attached to the Report Portion of the form that is filled out and turned into the local county extension office at the end of the year.
4-H members will obtain a certificate of achievement at the end of the 4-H year (October – December) once they have completed a level. Levels 1 through 5 are awarded by the local county UNL Extension office. Level 6 Diamond recipients will be presented a certificate and a diamond clover pin by the Nebraska State 4-H office.
The program consists of six levels that require a 4-H member to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. The program is designed to enable every 4-H member willing to exert the effort an opportunity to be recognized, regardless of how they are involved in 4-H. The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program levels include:
