Ohio youth are expected to affiliate with the 4-H program in their county of residence. OSU Extension programs are typically supported at the local level by taxes, and so it makes good sense that a child would participate in the county program into which their parents or guardians are supporting with taxes. However, there can be circumstances in which membership in a county other than where they live may be a practical and reasonable request.
