Member, Club, and Volunteer Resources
After making contact with a club or staff member, follow the steps below!
New members can enroll on 4-H Online (new version is being initiated in August 2020, instructions will be updated for new 4-H year) or by submitting a paper form to the Broward 4-H office. See below for instructions for 4-H Online. Paper forms can be found HERE.
After enrollment forms have been submitted (either online or on paper), the $20 membership fee is due.
Enrollment and membership fees are renewed every year on September 1st.
Assembling Your Project Record Book
To receive recognition for project competition, each 4-H participant must submit at least one General Project Record Book by the second Monday in August.
The first item in the Project Record Book should be the completed Project Evaluation. Project Record Books without evaluations will not be accepted (unless the member opted out of evaluations at the beginning of the year).
The next item in the Project Record Book should be the Project Report Score Sheet. Please choose a Project Report Score Sheet based on age level by September 1 of the current 4-H year:
Scorecard - Cloverbud Summary
Scorecard - Junior Project Report
Scorecard - Intermediate Project Report
Scorecard - Senior Project Report
Scorecard - Secretary Record Book
Scorecard - Treasurer Record Book
Scorecard - Historian Record Book
Next, please choose a Project Summary or Report based on age level by September 1 of the current 4-H year:
Finally, include any project work and materials, including the original project book.
This can seem like a lot! Let's review! All of these items can be put together into a binder. Follow this order: Evaluation sheet, Scorecard (left blank), Project Report, your original project book provided to you by your club leader or 4-H Agent, Project Story (instruction located in the Project Report), and finally, Project pictures (instructions located in the Project Report). Ask your club leader or 4-H staff for help if needed!
Golden Clover Achievement Record Book & Club of the Year
Achievement Records, which consist of an Achievement Record Book and supplemental materials, are complete records of a 4-H member's annual participation in the program. Juniors, Intermediates, and Seniors may submit the following Golden Clover Achievement Record Book and supplemental materials for additional recognition. The Golden Clover Achievement Record Book is also due by the second Monday in August.
The Club of the Year application must be submitted along with a historian portfolio for the year (i.e. a scrapbook) and the club standards of excellence form. This application and its supporting materials are due by the second Monday in August.
In addition to a perfect attendance award, club leaders can award members an individual Club Merit award if their member completes all three requirements:
- Completed & submitted a project book
- Attended a community service event
- Participated in an event outside of your club (ex: another club’s event, or a county, district, or state event)
Club members submit this information to 4-H staff to be awarded in the fall at the annual Achievement Night.
Report volunteer hours HERE for youth and adults. Starting September 2020 volunteer hours will be entered in 4-H Online!
Reporting your volunteer hours helps us acknowledge your hard work at the end of the 4-H year. We also report these hours to our stakeholders.
