4-H Logo
A 4-H project is a series of learning experiences for 4-H members. There are 60 project areas available for 4-H'ers to choose from in Franklin County. Most projects have manuals or books to assist the 4-H'er with his/her project. 4-H is a "learn by doing" program. Leaders, Junior Leaders and parents are encouraged to teach and show members how to complete a task, but members are expected to learn how to do things themselves, and complete their own projects. One of the fundamental principles
