We are excited to have you join the 4-H family in Hall County! For more information on what 4-H has to offer, check out our 4-H welcome packet (pdf).
We would also like to invite you to take a look at the following PSA video, created by 4-H member Emily Reimers, on how 4-H Grows True Leaders (MP4).
The new 4-H year began October 1, 2020. Please visit ne.4honline.com to enroll in 4-H. New 4-H members may enroll anytime during the year; however in order to participate at the Hall County Fair, enrollment must be completed by June 15th. We ask returning 4-H members to re-enroll by March 15th. Listed below are several step-by-step guides to walk you through the process.
Join a 4-H Club OR Join 4-H as an Independent Member
Choose what works best for your family!
- A 4-H club is an organized group of youth, led by an adult, that provides a series of educational experiences. 4-H clubs typically have elected officers and a set of rules approved by the membership to govern the club.
- Families/youth may choose to participate in 4-H as Independent members, operating independently of a formal group setting, such as a club. This may be an individual or family learning effort.
We are always welcoming new clubs. 4-H clubs must have at least three families enrolled with five kids or more. If you would like to start your own 4-H club, please contact the Hall County Extension Office at (308) 385-5088 or check online for further details at http://4h.unl.edu/clubs. If you would like a current 4-H club to contact you with further information about their club, please contact the Hall County Extension Office.
