4-H Project Selection
Project selection is left to individual members.
There are projects for everyone's interests. They cover everything from cooking to sewing to photography to rockets to large and small animals.
Each project book contains a wealth of information and activities for planning and conducting a project. The projects can be completed by participating in activities through organized project groups or by carrying out the activities individually under the guidance of a parent or other adult.
A 4-H project is made up of three types of activities:
- Hands-on activities: making, producing, selling, practicing, observing, testing, interviewing, etc.
- Organized activities: demonstrations, speeches, workshops, camps, county judging, project activities, exhibits, etc.
- Leadership/Citizenship activities: conducting, planning, teaching, assisting, informing, organizing, etc.
When choosing a project, consider your interest, background, what is necessary to start your project, and what is available to help you complete it. Review the Family Guide as a family, club, or group. A good rule of thumb is to select no more than two projects as a first-year member.
