4-H Online Enrollment
As we embark on a new 4-H programming year, we are excited to introduce you to a new on-line enrollment system. All 4-H families will enroll in clubs and projects through 4HOnline at ne.4honline.com . You will need to create a new family account and profiles for each 4-H member at ne.4honline.com to participate in the 2015 program year.
4HOnline is a web-based enrollment system that will allow families to enroll in 4-H on your personal computer, mobile device or at local enrollment events hosted in your county. You'll be able to complete all of the information necessary to join.

PROJECT RESOURCE CENTRAL
This project reference guide lists project resources available for Nebraska 4-H members, families, and volunteers. It includes materials developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension 4-H Youth Development, National 4-H, and other universities, as well as online resources.
Most items listed are available as printed manuals, but some are avaliable in electronic form (CD, DVD, or online). All online resource links can be found on the corresponding Project Resource webpage.
National 4-H items are noted by NATL4H; these manuals must be ordered through the National 4-H mall. Unless otherwise noted, materials can be obtained through your UNL Extension Office, UNL Extension Marketplace, or this website. 4-H provides many educational projects and activities for youth; however, not all correspond with a fair exhibit.
4-H DIAMOND CLOVER PROGRAM
The Nebraska 4-H Diamond Clover Program encourages 4-H youth to engage in a variety of projects and activities that will enable members to acquire the life skills necessary to lead successful lives as competent, caring and contributing citizens. The program's overall goal is to provide 4-H members a rich and diverse learning experience.
The program consists of six levels that require a 4-H member to plan and report a broad range of age-appropriate accomplishments. The program is designed to enable every 4-H member willing to exert the effort an opportunity to be recognized, regardless of how they are involved in 4-H
QUALITY ASSURANCE TRAINING
4-H youth ages 8-18, who are enrolled in a livestock project (beef, meat goat, poultry, rabbit, sheep, and swine), are required to complete three modules in the Livestock Quality Assurance Online Course by June 15. Intermediate and Senior age youth may alternatively elect to take a test-out test. Practice test-out tests are available through the online course, however, the actual test is administered by their local extension office.
The online course has been divided into three age levels (specific age requirements are defined by your state): Junior, Intermediate and Senior. Those not completing Quality Assurance will NOT be allowed to show at the Fair.
To complete your training visit http://campus.extension.org/. Upon completion of each module, youth will be able to print a certificate of completion. Youth will need to deliver the certificates of completion to the Extension Office. There is a $5 fee to take course. If you would like to set up a time to complete this at the Extension Office, please call 254-4455.
