Enrollment is done through the 4-H Online website. If you have questions or need help with the enrollment process, please contact the UI Extension, Nez Perce County office at 208-799-3096 or nezperce@uidaho.edu.

Participants 8 to 18 years old take part in a wide variety of project, leadership and citizenship activities, including competitive events. Special needs individuals older than 18 are eligible to participate if they are enrolled in high school.

Cloverbuds is designed for youth ages 5 to 7 years old and focuses on non-competitive group learning experiences.
