Hear from Ellis Co. 4-H'ers - Why Join 4-H!

How to Join 4-H

 ENROLLING IN 4-H is easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Check out the New 4-H Family Welcome packet.

2. Review the 4-H Club Listing below and identify a club from your area.

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

When you decide to join a club, the leader shares the enrollment process with you.  Complete it as soon as possible so that you can be added to the 4-H mailing list. In order to participate in the Ellis Co. Fair, you must be enrolled by May 1 (Some livestock projects have earlier deadlines. You'll want to check with the Extension Office for those deadlines.) You don't want to miss out on upcoming opportunities!
