Oconee County 4-H members are involved in their community in many ways.  They believe in giving back to their community and participate in many community service projects each year:

Livestock Shows

From first through twelfth grade, 4-H members learn to raise, care, and exhibit their animals. Georgia 4-H offers a variety of livestock opportunities. 

Project Achievement

Project Achievement is one of the most prominent 4-H competitions. It helps 4-H'ers develop both oral and written communication skills while giving them the opportunity to investigate or research a topic of their interest. 5th and 6th grade students will sign up through their club meeting teachers.
