4H Enrollment Information

Please check back for the 2019 enrollment instructions.
They will be available soon. Thank you!

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. 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 October, December, February, March, May, and June. The Wayne County Teen Leaders assist at the meetings.

Enrollment instructions: Online enrollment is due on or before February 1, 2019. Everyone (includes traditional

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. The database is updated every five years on a district rotation. Our district was updated in 2016. New volunteers and volunteers that did not complete the process last year or in 2016 are asked to complete the screening process even if they have done it before. Once enrolled, volunteers that need to complete the process will receive an email from DHHS with a link to a website where the application can be completed.
