Projects and Activities

A 4-H project is an opportunity for youth to gain knowledge and skills in an area of special interest. It includes a planned sequence of activities that are age-appropriate and research-based. Youth are encouraged to set individual goals of what he or she wishes to learn and accomplish in the specific project area. 4-H staff and volunteers are available to help guide project work by helping youth set goals and provide access to appropriate curricula and resources. Youth are encouraged to exhibit a finished product related to the project area at county fair. Exhibiting a finished product related to a project at county fair gives the youth an opportunity to receive constructive feedback from an expert in the field on his or her project exhibit.
