4-H Enrollment Deadline Dates

Returning members for all projects, the enrollment deadline via 4H online is January 31st by midnight.

(Horse certificates are Due January 31st to the WSU Extension Office)

New members for all projects, the enrollment deadline via 4H online is April 1st.

Membership Fees and Payment  

In order for enrollments to be approved the membership fee must be paid. For cash, club check, or money order…..this is due January 31st. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS

Payments by Credit Card

Jennifer Leach is requesting that enrollments paid by Credit Cards need to be done by January 26th. So if it is a declined credit card, then we can connect with you and your family that it has been declined and that we will need payment by cash, money order, or club check by January 31st. It is my understanding that 4-H online will let your 4-H family know if it is a declined card.

If our office does not receive that form of payment by January 31st….then the enrollment will be cancelled until payment is received. If this happens the 4-H member will not be eligible for the Cowlitz County Fair.


Our Extension office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 to 12:30 pm. If you plan to turn payment forms in during office hours…please do so by 12 noon so that Carlee has enough time to process them.

Because of our limited office hours—Jennifer Leach will be available in the Extension office the following dates from 7 pm to 9 pm to accept membership fee payment:

  • Monday, January 21st
  • Thursday, January 24th
  • Wednesday, January 30
  • Thursday, January 31st

Please contact the Extension Office if you have any questions.
