Enrollment is not required for some 4-H programs and events. However, club members are required to officially enroll through the 4-H Online system once a year in order to participate in club activities and fair events. Youth ages 8-18 who are not members of a formal 4-H club may enroll as independent members. Youth between the ages of 5 and 7 may also enroll as Clover Kids. By enrolling, youth have the opportunity to participate in statewide events and opportunities. While enrollment is open year-round, youth interested in participating in their county fair or the Nebraska State Fair must complete enrollment by June 15.
