Flat Herbie is Here!

Flat Herbie February 15, 2019 marks 150 years since the day the state of Nebraska chartered the University of Nebraska. This means that on February 15, 1869, the University of Nebraska became a part of the fabric of our state.

Flat Herbie is here to celebrate this milestone. Cut out Herbie and make him part of your community by taking him on a tour of your town. Snap a picture of him at local events, favorite landmarks, or 4- H activities. Upload the pictures to your social media channels with #N150Herbie or email us at nebraska4h@unl.edu. We encourage everyone (students, faculty, staff, 4-H families, and alumni) to get in on the fun with Flat Herbie throughout 2019!

Flat Herbies are now available to pick up at the Extension Office.

The first 12 participants to post their Flat Herbie photos in York County will receive a red glowing bouncy ball!

Participate during the month of February to win the Grand Prize! All photos submitted during Nebraska 4-H Month will be included in the N|150 Grand Prize Drawing, sponsored by Nebraska 4-H. Two winners will receive a UNL Prize Pack, filled with Husker Gear!
