4-H Online Registration Instructions:
If your child is not already enrolled in 4-H you can do this by visiting the 4-H Online website and starting a family profile. https://www.4honline.com/ This website works best in Google Chrome in case you have issues in other browsers. You will add your son/daughter under your family profile and any other kids in your home that want to join. Parents, don’t enroll yourself as a member unless you are looking to volunteer.
Once you submit his or her enrollment, you can go back to the family member page and scroll to the bottom to register a member in an event.
