LAST CHANGE: Enrollments Due!


If you haven’t completed your 2022 enrollment yet, now is the time to do so! You can find the instructions and reminders on how to complete your enrollment below. Enrollments are due April 1, 2022.

If you have already submitted your enrollment for 2022, Adrienne has started the process of reviewing and approving those enrollments. If something has changed since you have submitted your enrollment, please reach out to her at as soon as possible to make any project corrections before she approves your enrollment. While it is possible to make project changes after the enrollment is approved, it is easier to do so before the approval process is complete. You can always check on your project enrollment by logging into your family profile and selecting the name of the member whose enrollment you wish to view. Then you just need to select Enrollment along the left-hand side of the profile to view in which projects that member is enrolled. If you see any mistakes we would love to get that fixed right away.

A few reminders as you enroll for this year…

Your login credentials are the same as last year. If you have forgotten your password, please use the Reset Password option to reset your password. If you no longer have access to the email account you used last year, please email me so I can update your family profile.

Instructions on how to log in and enroll can be found on the How to Join 4-H page here:  Scroll down to the instructions for RETURNING Families. There are step-by-step instructions that you can view and print, a tip sheet, and a video.

Once you have reviewed the instructions, visit to login and enroll. Please note that the site works best in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Please ensure that you are at the 4HOnline 2.0 site and have not traversed to the old site. Please note: If you search for 4HOnline through a search engine, often the first option that populates is the old site. Please make sure that the login screen looks like this:

A few things to note:

  • If anyone in your family has been enrolled in 4-H anywhere in Ohio since 2014, you will have a family profile. If you have trouble accessing your family profile, please DO NOT create a new one. Contact Adrienne ( and she will help you get access to your existing profile.
  • If you have a family member who has “skipped” a year or two of 4-H, their profile may have been archived. Please contact Adrienne and let her know to reactivate the profile. Please DO NOT create a new profile. We want to utilize the existing profile for each member as all of their 4-H history is attached to the original profile.
  • Please take the time to review each member’s profile as you enroll them to ensure ALL the information is there and correct. Please update any contact information that may have changed since last year.
  • Please be sure that all projects are included and correct BEFORE you submit an enrollment. You will NOT be able to make changes to club/project enrollment once you click the Submit button. If you are not able to complete the enrollment in one sitting or are trying to decide on projects, the system will save each page of progress. You can leave that enrollment and come back to it later. Once you have submitted your enrollment, any changes regarding club and project enrollment will need to be made through Adrienne.
  • Once you submit an enrollment, it will be listed as “awaiting review” until it is reviewed at the county level. It will either be approved or will be sent back to you if there is something that needs fixed.
  • If you select a livestock, horse, dog, or shooting sports project the system will ask you to electronically sign the consent for those projects. This will replace the paper consent forms that were required for those project areas in the past.
  • Cloverbud members should select project #715 My 4-H Cloverbud year for their enrollment.
  • Those joining the Licking County 4-H Band should select COP-Arts 1900 Performing Arts – 4-H Band for their project. It will be listed towards the end of the project list with the other County Only Projects (COP).

Quality Assurance: 2022 Licking County 4-H/FFA QA Sign-Up

Licking County Livestock Project Members (beef | dairy | dairy feeder | goat | poultry | rabbit | sheep | swine)…

BACKGROUND: All members in the above-listed projects are required to complete a Livestock Quality Assurance (QA) training on an annual basis in order to exhibit in Junior Fair programs such as the Hartford Fair and Ohio State Fair. You will find details below allowing you to complete the QA requirement for 2022. As a reminder, this requirement pertains to all livestock project members, as well as at least one Club Advisor from each club containing a member enrolled in livestock projects. Training must be completed by no later than June 1st.

As you plan to complete your QA requirement in 2022, you’ve got TWO primary options!

  • Attend an online QA training offered by Licking County Extension Office
  • Participate in the YQCA national training program online
  • …or you may have obtained your training through an OCA BEST Show, Ohio Beef Expo, or other training external to Licking County, offered since October 2021, that meets your requirement for this year.
  • …or you may have tested out in 2020 (ages 15-18, passed test), which covers your requirement for this year.


To sign-up for one of the online trainings offered in Licking County, simply go to, and complete the registration form, at which time you’ll choose your preferred session. Please notice that all sessions are species-specific. Make your selection carefully… Sessions will fill to a capacity of 65 families on a first-come, first-served basis. You’ll receive an email confirmation right away (within 2-3 minutes), then the zoom link and handouts will come approximately 24 hours in advance of your training. If you DON’T RECEIVE THE CONFIRMATION, check your spam/junk email folder first – it may be there! If not there either, you can reach out to Lisa ( right away, as you likely typed your email address incorrectly. You can view complete information pertaining to Quality Assurance requirements for 2022, as well as the complete list of dates, online here. All advisors and members may only register for ONE session, as space is limited. We also ask that if members of a family are planning to attend the same sessions, that they all register through the same login – complete registration one time, but add all names in the box provided. If you must cancel or changes sessions, please email so that we can make adjustments to allow space for someone else.


Online training is available through the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) web-based program. The program is typically offered at a cost of $12 per youth member. You can find additional details online at You must first purchase a Coupon Code (registration fee) to complete the training. You’ll find those instructions behind the “Buy Coupon” tab, at the top of the page. You can submit the order form by email or mail – but don’t wait until the last minute to choose this option, as the payment process takes a little time. Once you have the Coupon Code, you can log in to the YQCA system, and complete the appropriate training modules. All 4-H members will use their 4honline username and password to login, while those who are FFA members will login through a separate link on the same login page.  Upon completion of certification, you need to email so that we will know that you have completed the training (We would also suggest notifying your 4-H / FFA Advisor). We will them remove you from the list of those who still need to complete QA training for the 2022 project/fair year. This online certification is a great option for many of you who wish to go ahead and get your training out of the way early, as well as those who wait until the last minute, when all other trainings have already been held. (Note: YQCA is NOT intended for use by 4-H / FFA advisors).


If you tested out in 2020 as a age 15-18 member (only 16 individuals), we have record of your test and you will automatically receive credit for this year. We will not be offering the test-out option in 2022 due to the difficulties experienced in doing so during 2020 and the very few members who took advantage of this option.


If you attended a training outside of Licking County, we’d encourage you to pass along proof of attendance to, to ensure that you receive credit. Most training hosts will share attendance records, but there’s always a chance that they do not. By you sharing your proof of attendance, it ensures that you receive the appropriate credit.
