Standards for Marion County 4-H Members and Clubs:
Enroll in 4-H: https://florida.4honline.com (Please note: You should first find a club [see the 4-H Clubs tab on the left side of this page for a list] and ask the club leader if there is space to join their club before you submit your enrollment form in 4HOnline.)
**Please remember that your 4HOnline enrollment profile becomes inactive in mid-August each year. A parent or guardian must re-enroll a 4-H youth in 4HOnline after September 1 of each year in order to remain active.
*Club members must attend at least 75% of their club meetings in order to remain in good standing with 4-H and in order to show in the Southeastern Youth Fair.
The club secretary and club treasurer of each club is required to submit a completed record book to the 4-H office at the end of the 4-H year (usually in June). Secretary and treasurer manuals serve as proof that a club is active and complying with all appropriate 4-H policies and procedures. Clubs that do not turn secretary and treasurer manuals in will be placed on probation and risk losing their club charters. Officer manuals are not required, but club officers (president, vice president, etc.) can complete this manual to receive a pin and 4-H recognition at our annual Achievement Night banquet.
Senior Portfolios: You don't have to be a Senior in high school to begin applying for senior portfolios. You can submit a senior portfolio as early as 14 years of age. Completing an awards portfolio will allow you to compete for national awards, trips and scholarships. For more information, visit: http://florida4h.org/youth_/awards-and-recognition/portfolio/.
