4-H Projects

After joining a 4-H club, one of the first things members will do is select at least one project to work on throughout the year. Members can choose from almost 100 different project areas — from aerospace to woodworking to visual arts to shooting sports and animal science. The state 4-H projects are listed described in this link below. Projects help youth learn more about a topic of interest, develop skills to use throughout life, and share with others what they have learned.
