Please enter only once per 4-Her on the online form. Please write down the classes each 4-Her is pre-entered so you have a record for your own needs. A report will be created after the July 1 deadline and given to club leaders to share with members that shows what each 4-Her has entered. It is your responsibility to make certain you review each online form/paper form and carefully select the project areas for entry.
