Nebraska 4-H enrollment in all on-line.  The updated 4-H Online is now located at the new website There are no paper enrollment options available.  The system gives families more flexibility and responsibility in registering for 4-H. Each family will go online and create a family profile, enroll or re-enroll youth, choose projects, and pay enrollment fees. If you are a returning family, please do not create a new family profile, just renew information in your existing profile. This helps to keep a 4-H family’s history more accurate.  

     There is a $20.00 registration fee per 4-H'er and the deadline is June 15th. The online enrollment page will have two options available for payment, credit card online or check made payable to University of Nebraska-Lincoln sent to the Dawson County Extension Office by the deadline.  4-H’ers will be officially enrolled once their payment has been processed. Project changes will be done by the family and may be done at any time. Livestock projects have their own deadlines, please see the policy manual for that information. It is the members responsibility to know deadlines and contact the Extension Office if unclear. The sooner you enroll, the sooner you will receive project related info.

Leader Materials

On-line enrollment is required for organizational leaders, project leaders and volunteers.  There are no registration fees for adult leaders or volunteers.  See enrollment instructions above.

Each 4-H'er is to submit the green 4-H Youth Project Manual Request Form to their 4-H club leader showing the manuals needed.  The leaders will then interpret those manual needs from their club onto the 4-H Club Leader Manual Order Sheet and submit to the Extension Office.  Inventories of manuals are not being kept in the office so manuals will then be ordered from these sheets accordingly.
