1. Youth may enroll in project areas at any time. However, to be eligible to exhibit at the county fair with full privileges the information in the Competitive Event Table must be met.
18
2. For youth enrolling in 4-H for the first time and/or joining clubs or programs organized after the May 17, 2021 deadline, enrollment will be received for a period of one calendar week after the group is organized. Because of the animal science ID deadlines, youth enrolling after May 17, 2021 will not be able to exhibit in animal science projects with full privileges.
19
3. 4-H member may choose to utilize their one-time exemption recognizing that they have missed a 4-H deadline and waive all consequences for that deadline. The one-time exemption applies for the career of the 4-H member and transfers among Minnesota counties.
20
4. The one-time exemption form must be submitted with the late enrollment or late registration form.
21
5. For Animal Science ID deadline, the 4-H member has one calendar week after set deadline to turn in, to the Extension Office, the animal ID form and the one-time exemption form. (The animal must be owned by deadline.)
22
6. When a 4-H member uses their exemption for a late ID, then the animal(s) being ID'ed may only be shown by that same 4-H member at a 4-H county and/or state 4-H event. The late ID'ed animal(s) cannot be exhibited by another sibling at a 4-H event during the current 4-H year.
23
7. If the county determines the 4-H member is "not eligible," this consequence is removed, if the youth chooses to use the one-time exemption.
24
8. Grievance procedures and one-time exemptions are not allowed when possible outcome could affect another youth (e.g. State Fair trip acceptance deadline.)
25
9. Central County ID options: 1) Attend designated county ID with animal(s); 2) Make arrangements with someone else to ID animal(s) at designated date/place; 3) Make arrangements with 4-H Program Staff to attend another county's central ID date (not elibile for rate of gain); 4) Use one-time exemption and identify own animal(s). (Arrangements must be made with 4-H Program Staff prior to identifying own animals; not eligible for rate of gain.)
