Online enrollment for 4-H families

Enrollment for the new 4-H year opens up on mid-September and Minnesota 4-H families are reminded and encouraged to go to 4HOnline to enroll/re-enroll both youth members and adult volunteers. The process is quick and easy; even families with multiple youth should be done in 10 minutes or less. Re-enrolling early ensures that critical communications will be received, especially as it relates to deadlines and project specific information. Detailed information about online enrollment and re-enrollment is available at

Youth, their parents and adult volunteers, as part of enrolling or re-enrolling, will all be agreeing to the Minnesota 4-H code of conduct, which is available for review, along with other policy and authorization statements at or by contacting your local Extension office:

If you are not yet an adult volunteer, but are willing to share your time and talents to make a difference, 4-H needs you! The first step to becoming an adult 4-H volunteer is to complete the volunteer application process. Learn more at

All returning 4-H members and volunteers will re-enroll online by May 15th.  User guides and information are available online.  This is statewide.

New Members: Youth new to 4-H can join at any time throughout the year!

Re-Enrollment Deadline for Receiving County Scholarships: January 1st

Re-Enrollment Deadline:  Typically May 15th - for 2020 4-H year extended to June 1

Animal Science ID Deadline: Typically the Animal Science ID deadlines are February 15 (for market beef) and May 15 (for all others) to the Extension Office.  For 2020 4-H year, all others has been extended to June 1.

These ARE strict MN 4-H deadlines, and the following consequence applies:

If enrollments are not received by the May 15th deadline, the participant can still exhibit at county fair, participate in the auction and receive premium, but will receive no ribbon placing higher than a blue (including champions and reserve champions) and will not be eligible for State trips.
