SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title: Application for Authorization to Use the 4-H Club Name and/or Emblem.

OMB Number: 0524-0034.

Expiration Date of Approval: July 31, 2002.

Type of Request: Intent to request approval of an information collection.

Summary of Collection: Use of the 4-H Club Name and/or Emblem is authorized by an Act of Congress (18 U.S.C. 707). Use of the 4-H Club Name and/or Emblem by anyone other than 4-H Clubs and those duly authorized by them, representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture, the land-grant colleges and universities, and persons authorized by the Secretary of Agriculture is prohibited by the provisions of 18 U.S.C. 707. The Secretary of Agriculture has delegated authority to the Administrator of CSREES to authorize others to use the 4-H Club Name and Emblem. The Administrator has promulgated regulations at 7 CFR Part 8 that govern such use. The regulatory requirements for use of the 4-H Club Name and/or Emblem reflect the high standards of 4-H and its educational goals and objectives. Pursuant to provisions of 7 CFR § 8.6, anyone requesting authorization from the Administrator to use the 4-H Club Name and Emblem is asked to describe the proposed use in a formal application. The collection of this information is used to determine whether the applicant's proposed use will meet the regulatory requirements in 7 CFR part 8 and whether an authorization for use should be granted.

Need and Use of the Information: CSREES will collect information on the name of the individual, partnership, corporation, or association; the organizational address; the name of an authorized representative; the telephone number, fascimile number, and e-mail address; the proposed use of the 4-H Club Name or Emblem; and the plan for sale or distribution of the product bearing the 4-H Club Name or Emblem. The information collected by CSREES will be used to determine if those applying to use the 4-H Club Name or Emblem meet the regulatory requirements. If the information is not collected, it would not be possible to ensure that the products, services, and materials meet the regulatory requirements as well as 4-H educational goals and objectives.

Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average .5 hours per response.

Respondents: Individuals or households and business or other for-profit or not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 60.

Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.

Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 60 hours.
