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.

Enrollment is not required for many 4-H events and opportunities, but 4-H Club and Independent Members ages 8 - 18 on January 1 of the current year are required to enroll through 4-H Online. Youth ages 5 - 7 on January 1 of the current year may enroll as Clover Kids.

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.

Please contact your local Extension office for local fees, deadlines, and projects.
