Junior/Senior Project Achievement
4-H Project Achievement is a cornerstone in the Georgia 4-H Program. From the first Boys' Corn Club sharing their crop to today's presentations and portfolios on hundreds of topics, Project Achievement serves to showcase 4-H'ers work and success.
In Junior competition, our 4-Her's placed 1st in the Crafts Project, discussing the history, use, and crafting of dollhouses. One of our 4-Her's placed 1st in the Dairy Foods Project. Over the hour of competition, she prepared from scratch skillet macaroni and cheese with broccoli, bell pepper, and onion. one of our 4-Her's tied for 1st in the Textiles, Merchandising, and Interiors Project, discussing wedding dresses through the past century. Our 4-Her's placed 1st in the Outdoor Recreation Project, instructing how to field dress and prepare a squirrel for preservation.
In Senior competition, another 4-Her placed 5th in the Festive Foods for Health Project. Over the hour and a half, she prepared from scratch a layered spaghetti casserole with a meat and spinach spaghetti sauce. Another 4-Her placed 1st in the Outdoor Recreation Project, discussing how to field dress a deer. For this accomplishment she earned the privilege of attending State 4-H Congress later this summer, where she will compete against other district winners to be named State Project Winner.
Accompanying them was Dr. Laura Griffeth, County Extension Coordinator, and the Webster County 4-H Associate, Samantha Pace.
If you or your 7th - 12th grader are interested in doing a project, please contact us. The next Junior/Senior Project Achievement will be held in February 2017. We will begin working on portfolios during summer 2016 but will not finalize anything until the beginning of 2017. It's not too late!
