The Unified Showing 4-H club empowers youth with special needs by pairing them with buddies who ensure the safety of the youth showman and lamb. There will be a selection process for both showmen (ages 8–18) and buddies (ages 14–18). Applications are due by Saturday, Feb. 14.

The club will aim to have meetings once a month. During the summer, practices will be held once a week at project leader Allison Walbrecht’s farm in southwest Lincoln. Youth will practice with their designated lamb that Allison’s family owns. At the end of the summer, the showmen will be able to see their hard work pay off at the 4-H Sheep Show during Lancaster County Super Fair.

For more information about the club or to request an application form, contact Allison via the Unified Showing Facebook group or email amnwalbrecht@gmail.com.
