4-H Enrollment

New Carroll County 4-H Members

Welcome to the Carroll County 4-H Program! We are excited to share all of the opportunities that the 4-H Program has to offer and you probably have many questions as you start this journey. Here are a few steps in helping you become an official 4-H member:

  • Have you attended your first Carroll County 4-H Club Meeting? This would be the monthly meetings you would attend. This is the first step in joining the 4-H Program and making the connections with the 4-H Club Leaders, who are a great resource in helping you join 4-H.
  • After you have attended your club meeting, the next step is registering through the Maryland 4-H Online Enrollment system. This website can be found at: When registering through this site, you will need to create a family account. You will then be directed in setting up each 4-H/Clover Member and any UME Volunteers under the family name. Make sure you write down your log in information, as this is what you will use each year to enroll in the Carroll County 4-H Program.
  • After you have set up your account and registered each person in your family that will be a part of the 4-H program, you will be directed to pay an annual participation fee of $10. This must be paid online to complete your enrollment.
  • Make sure you receive a confirmation email that you are now enrolled in the Carroll County 4-H Program. You can log in at any time to also check your status, as it will show everyone as PENDING and when they have been approved to join the 4-H Program you will then see ACTIVE.
  • Once you become an active member in the program, you will start receiving the 4-H Tribune (a newsletter put out 10 times a year). You will receive this either through email or by mail, depending on what you selected when setting up your account.
  • Remember you must be enrolled by May 1st of the current year to be eligible to participate in the Carroll County 4-H/FFA Fair.
  • Another resource in learning more about the Maryland 4-H Program is the Maryland 4-H Family Guide. Take a look at the different offerings of the program and if you have any questions talk with your club leader or county 4-H Educators.
