Lexington 4-H Projects
What is a 4-H Project?
4-H members participate in projects where they are asked to accomplish a task, i.e., make something, develop a skill, raise and/or train an animal, etc. There are numerous projects available to 4-H members, including; foods, clothing, public speaking, models, aerospace, wood science, livestock, health, gardening, and photography.
4-H members begin by exploring their interests. They may select one or more projects and receive a project manual which guides them through the activities. 4-H projects are age appropriate. The 16-year-old 4-H member will be expected to do a more advanced project within their area of interest, whereas the 10-year-old might be working with an introductory activity.
4-H'ers can complete a record that demonstrates their project achievements and enter competition on a county, district and state level.
One of the most important aspects of 4-H project work is that the 4-H member decides what they want to learn and do as they explore their project. This allows the project to be self-paced and gives children important skills in setting and working toward their goals. If you would like to learn more about 4-H, contact your local County 4-H Agent.
