4-H Forms

UConn 4-H Verification Form Updates for 2021
In recognition of the continued challenges associated with completing verification and lease forms during this social distancing period, UConn 4-H will follow the revised guidelines from last year concerning how we will accept Animal Project Verification forms and the signatures on them.  The standard dates listed below will be used for 2021.   

4-H Horse submission deadline if participating in any activity with your horse on the New England level (ESE) is April 1

Dairy, Beef and Horse Deadline for submission is May 1 (grace period with late fee until May 15)

All other Animals – deadline June 1 (grace period with late fee until June 15)

*4-H members will be eligible for ESE 4-H Dog, Sheep and Goats provided their animals are verified by June 15th.

In lieu of a wet signature on a verification form a 4-H leader can send an email to the county office confirming the project verification.

In lieu of wet signature on the lease form, the owners of project animals to be leased must agree to lease terms with the 4-H member (and parent/guardian), and a copy of the lease terms, including animal information must be sent to the county office to go on file.

All parent and Youth signatures MUST appear on the 2021 verification forms and lease (if applicable).

Scanned forms, photos of forms and hard copy forms will be accepted for 2021.

Verification Forms

What is a verification form?
This form confirms that you have owned or leased your project animal by a specific date.  In order to exhibit any animal species, such as dog, dairy, beef, working steer, sheep, swine, llama, alpaca, goat, horse, rabbit, mules, donkeys, reptiles, small animal and poultry, at a UConn 4-H Fair for that project year, the project must be owned or leased by June 1 (May 1 for dairy cattle and horse).

It is important that each 4-H member complete new verification forms each year.  Get your forms from your leader, or call your local office.

Please see "Other Animal Forms" at the bottom of this page for ESE and other animal forms.
