Any youth in Washington County interested in joining 4‑H, who has not already done so, should get enrolled by March 1st. Youth may enroll online, at a 4-H club meeting, or at the Extension Office. There will also be two 4-H Sign-Up Open Houses scheduled for Tuesday, February 11, and Thursday, February 27. Youth and a parent may stop by the Purdue Extension Office any time before 7:00 p.m. on these two dates to enroll, pay the 4-H enrollment fee ($20 for regular and $5 for mini) and pick up their 4-H materials. 2013 4-H members who have not re-enrolled should can also enroll at one of the 4-H Sign-Up Open Houses.

To view the 2014 4-H Handbook or obtain 4-H enrollment forms, visit the Purdue Extension – Washington County website at and click on the 4-H Youth Development page.


Youth may also be enrolled online and pay their fee by credit card. To enroll online go to and follow the directions. It is best if a parent does this so they can also fill out the online consent form. Online enrollment instructions can be found on the Washington County Extension website listed above.

Youth are encouraged to sign up for 4-H and pay their enrollment fee by March 1st. The enrollment fee will be an additional $5 per person for those enrolling after March 1.

Regular 4‑H is open to anyone currently enrolled in grades 3 thru 12. Anyone who is currently in Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade is eligible to join Mini 4‑H. Youth unable to attend club meetings can still join 4-H as an independent member by signing up and getting their materials directly from the Extension Office.

For further  information  concerning  4‑H,  call Purdue Extension – Washington County at 883‑4601 or stop by their office located on the lower level of the Washington County Government Building at 806 Martinsburg Road in Salem.
