“Youth must be age 7 and enrolled for the current program year by January 1, in order to participate in competitive events and be eligible for competitive scholarships. Youth who are 5-6 years old by January 1, may be enrolled in our Cloverbud program. Youth will be allowed to join 4-H after January 1, but will not be ineligible to participate in competitive events or apply for competitive scholarships. Anyone turning 19 before January 1, of the 4-H year will not be eligible to join the 4-H program. The latest to drop or add a project for all members will be May 1st.
As you know, enrollment takes place online. Below you will find the video we suggest you watch to help with the enrollment process. Once you have enrolled, you need to ensure that your local Extension Office has received your Kansas 4-H Participation Form for all 4-H’ers, Community Club Leaders, and Project Leaders. 4-H’ers who are 14 years and older and express the desire to be a Junior Project Leader, must complete the Volunteer Screening Requirements. Adults who serve as Community Club Leaders and Project Leaders must do the same. Please refer to the Volunteers tab under 4-H Youth Development on the left.4-H Family Enrollment Brochure
