IMPORTANT Reminders for 2013-2014 ENROLLMENT!
- Starting July 1st you can start re-enrolling on the 4hOnlnie Enrollment System
- NEW Enrollment FEES! Members - $34.00 and Leaders - $12.00
- You are not an ‘active’ member until you have re-enrolled AND paid. This means you are NOT covered by the 4-H insurance, if an accident were to happen.
- Leader’s will sit in a ‘pending’ status until they have paid, attended a New Leader Orientation, and completed their DOJ background check.
Up Coming Events...
State Record Book Competition
It’s that time of year again! Youth who are planning to submit a 2013-14 Record Book to state competition must complete the Record Book Quick Start Course by October 15, 2013 (The cover sheet says October 1st; we are granting a 15 grace period this first year). All of the information needed to submit a Record Book to state competition, including the Quick Start Course, is found at: http://4h.ucanr.edu/Resources/Members/RecordBook/RBCompetition/
The course is completed online and takes about 25 minutes to view. After the course members take a short quiz which will take about another 7 minutes to complete. The quiz is how we will verify that a member took the course—it is important that they don’t skip that step!
In addition to helping youth prepare to submit a Record Book to state competition, the course is open to anyone who would like some additional guidance on completing a record book.
Individuals wishing to be 2013 Record Book judge need to complete and submit the Judge’s Application by October 1, 2013 by following the link to the application by survey.

Food Safety Training Available ONLINE!
The State 4-H Office requires that every club have at least one 4-H leader trained in Food Safety. The more leaders in your club that are certified, the more convenient it is for your club. It is required that a certified volunteer is to be present at all bake sales/food booths to make sure proper food safety guidelines are handled. Food Safety trainings are available anytime online!
