Presentations made in Nebraska

These are pictures  from our November presentation of 35 QOVs made by NE 4-H members this past year.

The 4-H QOVs were displayed at various county fairs around the state and finally at the NE State Fair in late August/early September.  Julia S and I were invited to the presentation at the State Fair where the kids received their ribbons and awards. 

After the Fair, the quilts were stored until the National Extension Educators Conference which was held in Omaha, NE in October. 

We had all 35 on display at the conference. In addition, the QOV 4-H curriculum developed by Nebraska extension educators was made available to extension educators from other states in hopes that they, too, adopt QOV as a service (and quilting!) project for their 4-H youth.

Look at that awesome stack of Quilts!!!

Sara and Julia - you guys rock!! Great thinking to get the 4H involved and teach them about community service!  Thanks for sharing what your area is up to!
