Choose a Club
 You can choose a club based on location, age, or special interest.  To see a list of 4-H clubs in Webster County click here. If you are having trouble, or the information is not available from the club map, please contact the County Youth Coordinator, who will be happy to assist you.  It is important that you make contact with the club leaders, as they will give you specific information about the club such as meeting locations, dates and times, club rules and expectations, and if they are accepting new members.

The 4-H Online database is the method for Online Registration.  The database tells the club leader and the extension office who you are, where you live, and what your project interests are.  There is an annual program enrollment fee of $30 to enroll in 4-H.  In Webster County, this fee is funded in part with assistance from NEW Cooperative.  This fee goes to support the state 4-H program. If you need assistance with re-enrollment, please check out our "Help Sheet for Re-Enrolling Members" or call our office at 515-576-2119. New families can contact the office for first time registration forms or you can register through the 4H Online system. The help sheet for new families is located here-
