Take a look at the 3 easy steps below! Our typical enrollment period is from September 16th through May 15th. Don't worry, if you have missed the enrollment deadline for this year we can still get you enrolled so that you can fully participate for next year!
 
4-H is a Program offered for youth in the 4th - 12th grades. There is a separate "Clover Kids" Program for Children K-3. Click Here for more information.
 
1) Pick a Club You may choose a club based on location, age or special interest. If club leader information is not available from the club map, please contact the County Youth Coordinator. To see a map of 4-H clubs in Dubuque County along with meeting times and information Click Here.
 
If your youth is in grades K-3 they will need to join a Clover Kids club. Many of our 4-H clubs already have a Clover Kids club that they associate with. For more information contact the County Youth Coordinator or the club leader.

Parent's 4-H Pledge

 
(From University of Illinois Extension)
 
I pledge my HEAD to give
my child the information I
can, to help him/her see
things clearly, and to make
wise decisions.
 
I pledge my HEART to encourage
and support my child no
matter whether he/she has
successes or disappointments.
 
I pledge my HANDS to
help my child’s club; if I
cannot be a club leader, I
can help in many equally
important ways.
 
I pledge my HEALTH to
keep my child strong and
well for a better world through
4-H for my child’s club, our
community, our country,
and our world

The Dubuque County Youth Staff is sad to report that the 2015 Dubuque County Fair 4-H/FFA Poultry Show has been cancelled by the Iowa Turkey Federation along with the Iowa Poultry Association due to the H5N2 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).  This cancellation includes all live bird exhibitions at county fairs, the Iowa State, and other gatherings of birds due to the avian influenza.
