What is 4-H Project Achievement?
Project Achievement is skills for a lifetime! Youth develop leadership, creativity, public speaking skills, recordkeeping, and more through this program! Specifically, students pick a project area of interest, research the topic, write a presentation, and present to others. As your child advances grades, a record keeping component is added. However, for 4th - 6th graders, it's all about sharing knowledge. For a Cloverleaf or Junior 4-H'er (4th - 8th graders), the presentation may begin at school or the county level competition and advance to the area or district level competition. Senior competitions may begin at the county or district level and advance to the state competition known as State 4-H Congress.
You will often hear 4-H Project Achievement referred to as DPA, or District Project Achievement. Youth in grades 4th - 12th can participate in 4-H Project Achievement.
