We are asking that all our Smith County 4-H members enroll on 4-H Connect, whether you plan to participate in contests or not.  This program takes the place of 4-H Plus which we used in office to keep records and generate reports.  Your assistance with our record keeping is greatly appreciated.  Below are directions for enrolling, or you can go to http://texas4-h.tamu.edu for a visual aid.



Before being able to enroll or register for an event, you must

establish both a family and a youth/adult profile. The family

profile allows for one family member to establish a profile and

club that is your primary 4-H club. If your club is not listed,

you will need to contact your County Extension Office. If you

Youth and adults are asked to select up to fi ve (5) projects

which they participate in, or provided leadership in. In

addition to the name of the project please indicate the number

of years involved in/with the project. If starting a new project

this year, years in project would be “1”.

the “Continue” button.

After you add a profi le, an e-mail is sent to the County

Extension Office asking for approval of the enrollment. Once

approval is given the family will receive an e-mail and you

can now register for events. Event registration cannot

begin until each profile has been accepted and a membership

number assigned.

with different questions related to volunteer screening, alumni

affiliation, etc.
