Sometimes referred to as the Cloverleaf Poster Contest, project achievement for 4th-6th grade 4-H'ers includes choosing a topic, researching the topic, creating a visual aid poster (see examples below) and giving a 3-6 minute presentation. All 5th graders are given information in their classroom. 5th grade teachers can add components to the project such as writing an essay and use project achievement to meet Common Core Georgia Performance Standards.
Walton County 5th graders are given this information in November and posters and presentations are due in December club meetings. Posters are collected by 4-H staff, judged and returned in January if not sooner. Along with returned posters information is given concerning County Project Achievement (CPA).
County Project Achievement and District Project Achievement are optional opportunities for 4-H'ers to present their project, have fun and meet other 4-H'ers from the county and Northeast Georgia 4-H District.
All 5th graders are given the "Finding Your Way to 4-H Project Achievement" Friends Magazine as a useful resource for tips, activities and advice on being successful in project achievement.
