4-H Projects

kids-hands.jpg

This project is the opportunity for you to work on your record keeping skills as well as work on building a 4-H resume that will assist you when preparing 4-H scholarships and awards. 4-H parents who's children have done the Achievement Book as an activity in the past years say it is an asset to have and also a great book of 4-H memorabilia. 

The 4-H Achievement Book project is a way of creating an organized summary of your entire 4-H experience that contains a comprehensive report of your goals, plans and accomplishments. It is one way to make a formal review of your goals and achievements and is a helpful tool to plan your own growth for the future. Your achievement record and report will be a good keepsake for years after you've finished your 4-H career. The record you build opens doors to many awards and benefits such as medals

Exhibits can include farm scenes, town models, building replicas, or similar items and can be con-structed from building blocks (Lego), erector sets, or other materials. The product should be constructed to scale as much as possible. Consider adding a clear cover to protect the exhibit while being displayed to the public. This exhibit will most likely be displayed on an 8’ long table top with two or three exhibits per table.
Exhibit will consist of a suitable display no larger than 2’x3’. Exhibits larger than this should be exhibited using photographs and a description of work in a notebook.
All arts and craft exhibits must include a 4-H Craft Information Card, 4-H 618A. This information card is to describe work completed so the judge can more accurately evaluate the exhibit. Craft information cards are for judging purposes only and will not be returned to the exhibitor.
If an exhibitor is concerned about their creation being damaged while on display, they should con-sider constructing a clear plastic cover to encase the exhibit.
