FCS & General Project Reminder
The deadline is almost here for you to get your project video URL uploaded into FairEntry (instructions were emailed out previously) and your completed e-record emailed to Jean (email is above, if needed).

These are all due on Monday, 7/6/20!!

Please be mindful of the fact that after you email your e-record to Jean, she has to save each one to a file and then she goes into FairEntry, looks up each member and uploads each e-record separately. She has to do this for every single project that has been entered for the FCS & General completion event, so be kind and get your e-records emailed to her by 1 p.m. on Monday, if at all possible. It might be a really late night for her otherwise, since judging begins on 7/7.
Please pay attention to your emails!
Dog and Cat Members who are entered in the 4-H completion events, please watch for an email coming from Shaylen soon with more details about your events!

Livestock Members who are enrolled in the 4-H completion events, keep an eye out for an email from Ethan next week sometime with more information on the Livestock completion events!
Do You Need a Signature?
Do you need a signature on your E-record? There are a few options the State Office has given us for this year.
  • You can ask your leader(s) to send you a note saying that they are signing the project.
  • Your leader(s) could email you their signature for the you to put in the e-record.
  • You can email your E-record to the leader to have them sign it and return it to you.

Face to Face Programming Request Policy
We appreciate your patience as we work to continue to offer high quality 4-H programming in Arapahoe County. As of May 16, 2020, CSU Extension has directed that we will continue virtual delivery for a vast majority of our programming. For those activities that are not able to be completed virtually, such as shooting sports practices (with certified shooting sports leaders), horse levels testing, horse practices, dog practices, and livestock clinics, CSU Extension will permit in-person activities that comply with all federal, state, and local regulations and public health guidance . At this time, this does NOT include 4-H club meetings, those will still need to be held virtually at this time. Please email our 4-H staff if you have questions about specific activities.

If you are interested in hosting an event, you must contact Arapahoe County Extension Staff at least TWO WEEKS prior to the event. This will allow for the office to develop a program plan request to be submitted to CSU Extension Administration and State 4-H. All activities must be submitted to CSU Extension administration prior to the event, 4-H staff will work with leaders on the required documentation for these programs. These activities will also adhere to CSU policies in support of public health and safety. Our ultimate goal is to remain relevant, strong partners within our Colorado communities, while also supporting their health and safety.

As part of Arapahoe County Government’s gradual facilities reopening plan, the Arapahoe County CSU Extension Office is now open by APPOINTMENT ONLY. We will not be able to accept walk-in clients at this time. Please email individual 4-H staff members to set up an appointment. Thank you!
Attention 4-H Members and Leaders!
There is a youth and adult participant form that will need to be filled out if you plan to participate in in-person programs (when allowed by all governing bodies) either as a member or volunteer. The form(s) must be completed and emailed to Jean at so she can upload them in 4HOnline.
