How to Join 4-H

1   Contact the Extension Office for some new family information (4-H handouts and online enrollment information).

2   Review the Club Information page and identify a club from your area.

3   Contact the leader of that club and make a visit to their club.  

4   Enrollment online as soon as possible so that you can be added to the 4-H Newsletter mailing list.  (Click on the 4HOnline Logo to go to the login page.)

5   In order to participate in the Barton Co. Fair, all new members must be enrolled by May 1. All returning 4-H members should be re-enrolled by December 1st.
