Who can join? Youth ages 8 and in the third grade to age 18 as of January 1st of the current year may join. Where do I sign up? Join a club in your county near your home or school. Experience 4-H with a friend; invite them to join with you. Contact the Fulton County Extension Office (419.337.9210) for enrollment information. When should I sign up? Enrollment is anytime from January 1 until April 1. April 1 is a competition deadline, but youth may join after that for the 4-H experience. Youth would not be eligible for prizes or awards after the April 1st enrollment deadline. Youth are not accepted after June 1st.

What is there to do?  Members will select projects (choose from more than 200) to explore through club and county activities.  Use the “2014 Family Guide,”  to learn about each project.

What are the benefits?  Members learn life skills, make new friends, enhance self-esteem, achieve personal goals, develop positive relationships with peers and volunteers, and have fun learning and sharing as a family and a club.

Does it cost anything? Your out of pocket costs for participating in 4-H will include one or more of the following types of expenses. A $20.00 county activity fee includes your project books.  Resource books are an additional cost (ranging from $11-$28, plus tax).  Projects sometimes need specific materials, supplies or animals to complete the 4-H learning experience. Some clubs fundraise for their activities and some have dues or fees for refreshments, fair passes,

t-shirts or supplemental insurance, etc.  Sometimes club events and opportunities will have a fee also.  Ask the advisor about their fee structure.

For more information call the OSU Extension Office in Fulton County at 419.337.9210, email to  or see the Fulton County 4-H Youth Development webpage or click here for an enrollment form.
