Youth may only be a 4-H member in one U.S. county during a given 4-H year. Youth may not be a member in two counties or two states simultaneously. We encourage youth to join a club in their local community. However, some youth due to personal circumstances may choose to apply for across county line membership.Have the member complete the Across County Line 4-H Membership Form and submit to the 4-H Educator(s) in the county of request. 4-H Extension Educators from both counties will review and respond to the family in writing. Members only need to complete once, unless special circumstances warrant a future request.4-H Educators will grant requests when:

  • A positive educational experience will result.
  • Competition or sale advantage is not the motive.
  • An unresolved controversial issue is not pending.
Counties can make additional restrictions to the Cross County Enrollment form and can require them to be completed annually.
