Enrollment is not required for many 4-H programs and events. However, club members are required to officially enroll through the 4-H Online system once a year. Youth ages 8-18 who are not members of a formal 4-H club may enroll as independent members. Youth between the ages of 5 and 7 may also enroll as Clover Kids. By enrolling, youth have the opportunity to participate in county fairs, the Nebraska State Fair, and additional statewide events and opportunities. There is no fee for officially enrolling as a Nebraska 4-H member. However, counties or clubs may require enrollment fees. Each county implements their own enrollment deadlines for county fair participation. Please contact your local Extension office for deadlines and enrollment instructions. After contacting your local office, visit 4HOnline and follow the instructions below to complete the enrollment process.
If you are enrolling in 4-H for the first time, you must contact your local Extension office before beginning the 4-H Online enrollment process.
