Is YQCA mandatory for all 4-H’ers?
YQCA is required to show animals at the Butler County 4-H Fair. 7-18 yr olds must pass a web based or instructor led training.
Not currently, but it is a priority of YQCA to address.
The online module certification is $12, and the instructor-led training method of certification is $3.
Does the YQCA certification ID sync with 4-H online?
No, the new YQCA platform is not connected with 4-H Online. You will need to create an account with YQCA.
I only show horses. Do I need to be YQCA certified?
No. Right now, YQCA, is not required for 4-H Horse Project Members.
Do 4-H’ers need to update their YQCA certification number each year?
Yes they do. Youth should re-certify around the same time they tested each year.
Yes! You must register and pay online before attending an instructor-led class.
Does Butler County 4-H get the registration money?
No, all registration money is online and goes to YQCA.
