     Youth enrolled in the shooting sports (archery & shotgun) or horse projects will need to sign special permission forms, so must be enrolled in those specific project areas.
     When filling out the emergency contact information please add contact info of someone other than yourself; if we are unable to get a hold of you who should we contact (spouse, grandparent, friend, etc.)?  

Use the new Pick-Your-Project resource guide to aid you in selecting your project areas for the 2024 year.  Enrollments are encouraged by March 15 so that you receive correspondence of all upcoming 4-H opportunities.  Enrollment deadline is June 15 if you wish to exhibit at the county and state fairs.

4-H Dues for each 4-H member or clover kid will be $5.00 with the 4-H horse project participants’ dues being $6.00.  The Cedar County Sharp Shooters and Archery Club memberships have an additional club fee to cover materials needed.  All dues will be used to pay for 4-H programming in Cedar County.  The dues also covers the cost of a supplemental insurance which is $2 for horse participants and $1 for all other 4-H members.  Leaders and volunteers may also purchase this insurance coverage for the cost of $1 if they so wish.  The insurance provides coverage to and from 4-H sponsored activities as long as an adult is present, this includes 4-H club meetings.  Please give your dues to your club leader or send into the Extension Office.  Please make checks payable to the Cedar County 4-H Council.

Volunteers - Parents willing to lend a hand within the 4-H program are asked to complete a volunteer screening.  This is a great opportunity for you as a parent to assist your child and others in learning life skills they will carry into the future.  This screening enables the 4-H program to assure you that we are providing a safe, positive and nurturing environment for your child.  Depending on your roll in the 4-H program as to which screening process you will be required to complete to meet the Nebraska 4-H Youth Activity Safety Policy.  For more information visit Volunteer Resources.
