Phillips Rooks District

Phillips-Rooks Extension District #5

The Phillips-Rooks District #5 is made up of Phillips and Rooks Counties. K-State Research and Extension programs present useful information related, but not limited to: Agriculture; Family and Consumer Sciences; Economics; 4-H Youth Development; Home and Family life; Business and Economics; and Health and Nutrition. We take programs to Schools, Gardens, Community Centers, and many other places.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.

COVID-19 Procedures and Resources from Extension

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we maneuver this COVID-19 pandemic.  As we move forward, all Extension events including 4-H will be meeting virtually until March 1, 2021, and then we, as a District, will evaluate the current health concerns and decide a plan to move forward.  Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.  Our top priority is keeping all of our participant's safe while in attendance at District-sponsored events.

As our society faces the challenges of maintaining health-oriented practices, social isolation, school closures, financial pressures and more, resources on the COVID-19 Extension page can help as you navigate through this challenging situation.

K-State Research and Extension specialists are subject matter experts in numerous aspects of life that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They provide unbiased, fact-based help in these subjects free of charge for the benefit of everyone in Kansas and the rest of the world.
