Mini 4-H Projects

December 21, 2018


The Mini 4-H project is designed to encourage positive development of children in Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grades. The goal of Mini 4-H is to help young children explore friendships outside the family; explore the way in which things work; practice both small and large muscle control; and think about the ways people work together on projects.  (Mini members may choose up to 2 projects, this does not include a project completed in 4-H in the Classroom)

The Mini 4-H experience is meant to be NON-COMPETITIVE at all times. Project requirements include:

  1. Members must have completed Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade during the current calendar year.
  2. Members may take as many exhibit building projects as they would like but are limited to 2 animal projects.
  3. Members should attend at least 2 local Mini or Regular 4-H meetings.
  4. Members must exhibit their project at the Marshall County 4-H Fair.
  5. Members must turn in a completed record sheet with each exhibit.
