What is a project?

In 4-H, members learn about topics that interest them. These topics are referred to as members “projects.” Offered projects range anywhere from health and nutrition, STEM and related fields, leadership skills, or animal and livestock care, plus much more! One of the most important aspects of 4-H project work is that the 4-H member decides what they want to learn and do as they explore their project. This allows the project to be self-paced and gives children important skills in setting and working toward their goals.

How do you select a project?

4-H members will receive a list of the projects from the 4-H Agent with their enrollment information. There they will find the list of projects that are offered in their parish and can decide from there. More than one project can be selected as well!

What does a project cost?

Prices of these books vary by project and by parish. Most of them are very inexpensive, with some having no cost! Contact your local extension agent for more details.

What are project books?

A project book is an interactive workbook to help members track their progress in their selected project(s). These books also offer ideas and activities to help jumpstart the project and keep members motivated to learn! These books also have a wide range of project focuses and difficulties. Competitions for project book completion is held in most local and parish clubs, as well as statewide, with an array of prizes to be offered. Completing a project book is a great way to stay focused on your project and watch your results throughout the year(s)!
