Lease Paperwork

Maryland 4-Hers may own or lease their project animals. 4-H Members may not have both owned and leased animals within the same project area during the same 4-H year (which runs January 1 through December 31). Deadline for lease agreements is June 1st annually or prior to your first 4-H event, whichever comes first.

ID Cards (Alpaca, Dog, and Horse)

If you are planning to show or participate in any alpaca, dog, or horse events during the year, you need to register your 4-H project animal with the Frederick 4-H Office by completing a Maryland 4-H identification card. Deadline to file is June 1st of the current year.


The site will open in March and remain open through July each year. Completion of this program is required to show your project animal(s) in County and State 4-H Shows. The deadline to complete the training is July 1 of the current year for Frederick County 4-H members. Click here for Program Guidelines and Tips.


As a high school graduate, you will set great goals for yourself in the next chapter of your life. Scholarships can make those goals easier to reach. Best of luck!
