4-H Discovery Days Registration is now open

The 2020 Kansas 4-H Discovery Days registration is now open.  The statement below has been added to the registration to establish clear expectations for those registering.  We are very hopeful the event will occur as planned but also want to recognize the possibility that factors out of our control could prevent the occurrence. 

 “In this time of uncertainty, we have opened the Kansas 4-H Discovery Days registration with the understanding that at any point we may need to cancel this event.  We will close registration and post information if and when that may be deemed necessary.  If we cancel the event, refunds will be processed.  Thank you for understanding.”
