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 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. While enrollment is open year-round, youth interested in participating in their county fair or the Nebraska State Fair must complete enrollment by June 15. Some counties may implement earlier deadlines for other programs, events, or opportunities, however. Please contact your local Extension office for deadlines and enrollment instructions. After contacting your local office, 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.
