Project Achievement

Project Achievement helps 4-H'ers develop both oral and written communication skills while giving them the opportunity to research a topic of their interest.

CLOVERLEAF PROJECT ACHIEVEMENT: 4-H'ers participating in Project Achievement at the 4th - 6th grade levels will research a topic and prepare a 4-6 minute demonstration or illustrated talk with posters. These demonstrations are given at an area event where they compete against 4-H'ers from other counties.

JR/SR PROJECT ACHIEVEMENT: Project Achievement for Junior and Senior 4-H'ers involves the preparation of a 4-H Portfolio and a Demonstration. Junior demonstrations are 8 - 10 minutes and Senior demonstrations are 10 -12 minutes. The 4-H Portfolio is a written record of their involvement in their selected project area and other activities. By preparing a portfolio, young people learn the skills needed to complete resumes, college applications and scholarship applications.

STATE CONGRESS: Senior 4-H members winning at the district competition will advance to State 4-H Congress. Congress is the state level project achievement competition where Senior 4-H'ers compete for state honors and Master 4-H status in their project area.

For the Project Achievement Competition, 4-H'ers prepare a demonstration with posters and other visual aids, then compete against other 4-H'ers in their category. There are over 50 projects to choose from, and 4-H'ers can talk about anything that interests them.
