Nebraska has joined more than 40 other states with 2.9 million youth in using the 4HOnline Enrollment system. While the method of collecting data is changing, the responsibility of maintaining and reporting accurate information about your youth program contacts remains essential. In this digital age, there are higher expectations for real-time access and management of 4-H enrollment data.

Join Dawes County 4-H by following the enrollment system in 4HOnline! Use the Nebraska Helpsheets shown below as a guide to enrolling through 4HOnline.

After enrolling in the 4HOnline system, please submit the required membership fee to our office at: 250 Main Street Suite 8, Chadron, NE 69337. Membership fee is $3.00 from October 1 - June 1 of the 4-H Calendar Year and $13.00 after June 1 of the 4-H Calendar Year. There is no fee for Clover Kids.  Please make checks payable to Dawes County 4-H Council.

  • 4-H Families, the Nebraska Extension - Dawes County 4-H Member & Family Handbook is a great resource! It includes the general "need to know" information about our county. This is a great resource for members and families joining Dawes County 4-H for the first time, and for current members to keep as a resource guide to our county.
  • If you are not enrolled in 4-H and do not have your project selections made on 4-H Online by June 1, you will be unable to participate in the 4-H portion of the annual fair.

  • Project Resource Central has a list of all Nebraska 4-H Certified Projects.

  • Clover Kid Resources is a website with some great ideas for our youth ages 5-7.
