New Member 4-H Enrollment INSTRUCTIONS

Enrollment Deadline: April 15 of the current year

You must be enrolled in a 4-H Club and select your 4-H projects by the deadline date to be eligible for exhibition at the Geauga County Junior Fair. 


New members must complete the following:

1. Submit paper - New Member Enrollment Form

Youth family members (ages 5-18 as of January 1)

•Youth ages 5-7 can enroll in the 4-H Cloverbud program
•Youth ages 8-18 can enroll in the 4-H program
Ohio 4-H uses the 4-H online system to manage all aspects of the 4-H program, including membership, events, projects, activities and communications. All youth who participate in Ohio 4-H, including 4-H Camps, must have a 4-H online profile.

Once the 4-H Office receives your Enrollment Form, the office will create a Family profile for you in 4-H online.  Once a family profile is created, it will exist for as long as members of that profile are involved in the 4-H program.  You will be able to veiw and update your profile, but once your projects have been approved by the office, they will not be allowed to be changed after April 15 of the current year.

If someone in your family was involved in Ohio 4-H from 2015-Sept 2020, you likely already have a family profile in 4-H online. Use your existing login and password to access your family profile in the NEW 4-H online platform. If you need assistance accessing your existing family profile, review the Returning 4-H Member under 4-H online. If necessary, contact the OSU Extension- Geauga County office at 440-834-4656 for assistance.
