2021 Brown County 4-H Policies and Guidelines - 

The Brown County 4-H Committee finalized and approved the 2021 4-H Policies and Guidelines on Nov. 19, 2020. These policies are in effect for 2021 and will be reviewed and updated each year.



Please complete this checklist to determine whether your club has met the Ohio 4-H Club charter requirements. This checklist will be reviewed by the County 4-H Extension Professional. Chartered 4-H clubs are permitted to use the 4-H Name and Emblem according to 4-H National Headquarter guidelines. Clubs that meet these minimum requirements will be granted/continue a charter. The charter checklist must be reviewed every year to assure a club’s continued compliance with the 4-H Club criteria.


Please note that this form must be completed for each calendar year's bank transactions for your club. This form must be completed by January 31 of the following year. (Example: if you are reporting on the financials of your club for calendar year 2020, this form is due no later than January 31, 2021). Clubs who fail to submit their financial summary by the deadline will not be clubs in good standing and may lose their club charter and eligibility to be a club.
