We offer an expansive and diverse range of projects to complete for 4-H! Projects are different from Clubs in that a project leader does not sign off on record sheets or project manuals to indicate completion of a project. We offer select workshops for certain projects to better educate and round out youths' 4-H experience.
If you have a question about a project, please call the county office at 317-275-9305
