Exhibit Introduction

The 4-H Veterinary Science Project provides youth a fun and hands-on learning experience that helps them learn more about the Veterinary Science profession, and opportunities for careers in animal health. Subjects such as general health care, physiology, anatomy, and careers are presented in the curricular materials, through workshops such as Science Workshops for Youth, and through hands-on experiences with local veterinarians. Youth also have the opportunity to develop responsibility, decision making and communication skills through active participation in the 4-H Veterinary Science Project.

4-H Veterinary Science exhibits should be educational in nature covering 1 or more of the topics presented in the manual and/or found in the 4-H Veterinary Science Leaders Guide. An educational exhibit is one that should be able to teach other people about your topic. Choose a topic you think is interesting and apply your imagination. All 4-H members developing Veterinary Science 4-H fair exhibits should consult with their 4-H Veterinary Science leaders for further details, helpful ideas, and additional sources for reference.
