Project Achievement

Georgia 4-H Project Achievement:

Description of Learning Experience:

The first Corn club of 1904 selected and completed projects and shared the results. This first 4-H club also held the first Project Achievement Competition. 4-H Project Achievement is a self-directed individual competition including presentations and, when age appropriate, a documented record of project work, leadership and service based on experiential learning activities. Youth beginning at age nine and continuing until nineteen have the opportunity to explore an area of interest and share their knowledge through a competitive process designed to meet youth development and age appropriate standards. Projects are offered in more than 50 different areas with nearly every topic of interest or educational area available for exploration and presentation.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Acquire an understanding of a subject matter in a given project area
  • Develop skills in researching, assembling, and presenting information
  • Develop and enhance qualities of integrity, sportsmanship, cooperation and self-confidence
  • Develop skills in leadership, service and communication
  • (7th -12th) Develop skills in planning and conducting leadership and service activities
  • (7th -12th) Prepare written information highlighting personal accomplishments in project work, leadership & service
