How We Can Help

USU Extension offers expertise and pertinent information specific to the needs of our county

What Summit County 4-H Offers:

September 1st marks the new 4-H year, meaning your club data and enrollment info needs to be updated! This data will remain in the system until September 2023, so if you update it now, you will be ready to go once summer activities start.

Additionally, members are encouraged to join a chartered club, and Utah 4-H only recognizes chartered clubs. Chartered clubs, at a minimum, have at least five members from three or more families. Research over the years has proven that youth involved in 4-H programs see the most benefit in the traditional club setting. By chartering your club, you are ensuring that you are providing the quality 4-H experience that kids deserve. Furthermore, to participate in 4-H activities around the state, including State Contests, and State Livestock Shows, youth should be active members in good standing, meaning they are involved in chartered clubs.

 Summary:

  • All youth and adult leaders need to re-enroll on Zsuite. 4h.zsuite.org
  • When you re-enroll: 
  • If you are part of a recognized chartered club, register under the name of your club. 
  • If your club has at least five members from three or more families, contact Sam ASAP so she can add your chartered club to the list. Then wait until the club is added before you register.
  • If you are part of a family club, register as "Summit County Family Club."
  • If you don't have a club but want to be a part of one, register as "I don't know what club I am in," and I will contact you.  

Benefits of Chartered Clubs:

  • Chartered Jr. Livestock Clubs are welcome and encouraged to fulfill their member's required educational events for the Summit County Jr. Livestock Show and Sale.
  • Access to curriculum resources, such as Discover 4-H.
  • Quality Assurance
  • Positive Youth Development
  • Increased social and leadership opportunities
  • Allows 4-H staff a mechanism to know who their active clubs are
  • Meets USDA mandates/laws
  • Grant Money

Please let me know what I can do to help you, your club or members continue to thrive in the 4-H program.

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI)

Chicken

HPIA was recently detected in chickens in Utah. Although it is not a danger to humans, it is very contagious and lethal in chickens. Infected wild waterfowl primarily spread the virus as they migrate and encounter open water sources and domestic waterfowl and poultry. Close contact with infected flock mates and contaminated water sources is the most likely infection source for backyard poultry. Avian influenza poses a significant danger to both backyard poultry and commercial operations in Utah. More information here.
