Welcome to Polk County 4-H!
Interested in joining 4-H? Here’s how!
New members may enroll at any time during the year!!
However, in order to participate in the Polk County fair, all enrollments, new and previous members, must be done before April 15th. All enrollments must be done in the wi.4HOnline.com website.
After April 15th new members may still join 4-H, but will not be allowed to exhibit at the Polk County Fair in the Junior Division for the current year.
Youth Growth Within 4-H
Cloverbuds: Youth in grades K-2. Cloverbuds are enrolled solely in Cloverbud projects.
Explorers: Youth in grades 3. It is meant to allow kids to try a variety of project areas and to exhibit a variety of projects at the fair. Youth in grades 3 are required to take exploring as a project in 4HOnline .
Members: Youth in grades 4 and up participate as regular members.
** Grade is determined by registration into the school district during the 4-H enrollment period. When a child exhibits at the fair, they are enrolled under the grade that they just completed, not the grade they will be entering in the Fall after the fair.
All enrollments are done through 4HOnline, an easy to use online enrollment system.
