Upcoming 4-H Events
Wrapping up the 2015-16 4-H Year
Can it be possible another 4-H year is about to end and a new one to begin? 4-H'ers end their year by completing their records and handing them over to their leaders for evaluation by September 1. Those applying for county recognition need to have their application (and in some cases their records) to the Extension Office by September 15.
All recordkeeping and recognition forms are avaliable on this website. Just scroll down to the Recordkeeping and/or Recognition headings. Contact the Extension Office for more information.

4-H Dog Project Information
4-H Dog Obedience Classes will begin on Sunday, May 1, at 6:00 pm in the large show ring on the Muscatine County Fairgrounds in West Liberty and continue on most Sunday's until the fair. Since the classes will be indoors they will not be cancelled if it is raining. Check the Dog Class Schedule link above.
A Dog Class Orientation will be held on Wednesday, April 20, at 6:30 pm at the Extension Office. This will be a good time to turn in your dog's shot records as you cannot bring your dog to class until your dog's shots are up to date (parvo/distemper, rabies, and bordatella). You can also upload shot records in 4hOnline if you'd like, but we would still like to have a paper copy on file.
Don't forget to identify your dog as your project in 4hOnline. After logging in to your records, click on the Animals/Livestock link toward the top of the page. Select Dog from the drop down menu, fill in the information, and hit Save. There is an option to upload a photo of your dog. This is nice, but purely optional.
Once your dog is identified, you wiill need to make a fair entry through an online program called FairEntry. FairEntry was created by the same company as 4hOnline so you will login with the same login as 4hOnline. That link is https://www.fairentry.com/Fair/SignIn/430, but it will only be open for entries from May 20 to June 26. Late entries after June 26 will be assessed a $25 late fee per entry.
Contact the Extension Office if you have questions.
