4H Enrollment Information

The traditional 4-H Program in Wayne Countyis open to all youth 8-18 years of age and our Clover Kid Program* is for youth ages 5-7. Ages for the 2019 year are based on the 4-Her's age as of December 31, 2018. The main focus of the 4-H Program is learning by doing. A variety of projects for all interests are offered through 4-H. The 4-H year begins in October and runs through September.

There is a $5.00/youth fee which includes 4-H Accident Insurance and helps cover the County Fair Food Stand pie expenses. Volunteers may purchase insurance ($2/volunteer) if they choose, but it is not required. This insurance will cover members/volunteers while participating in or attending regularly approved and adult supervised group 4-H activities.
New for 2019: Youth fees will be paid online during the enrollment process. For those that do not wish to pay online, payment may be brought to the Extension Office. The enrollment will be accepted once we recieve the fee. Volunteers will bring payment to the Extension Office.

Various projects have costs as well, depending on the project you choose.

*The purpose of the Clover Kid Program is to promote the positive development of youth to become competent, caring, and contributing citizens. The learning experience is the primary reason for involvement in the program. Youth will learn about
4-H, participate in activities, and make items they can bring to the Wayne County Fair. All exhibits receive participation ribbons. Clover Kids meet once a month in November, December, February, March, April, May, and June. The Wayne County Teen Leaders assist at the meetings.

4-Hers, Clover Kids, Organizational, and Project Leaders) will complete an on-line enrollment. No paper copies will be submitted. The Extension Office can assist you in completeing the enrollment process if needed. Please contact the office if you have questions.

4-H Volunteer / Staff Screening 
Nebraska Extension asks volunteers to be screened through the Department of Health and Human Services for child abuse and neglect. DHHS made the decision to change to an online process in 2018. New or unscreened volunteers will need to complete the process. Our office will subit the names of those individuals to the state 4-H Office after they've enrolled. Those volunteers will receive an email from DHHS with a link to a website where the application can be completed. The database is updated every four years on a district rotation. Our district was updated in 2016.
