This competition allows 4-H’ers to research a topic, prepare a presentation on that topic, and then present their speech, or demonstrate their abilities to perform in a competitive manner.
Project Achievement in Whitfield County starts in the 5th grade in-school club meetings, and 4-H’ers are encouraged to participate each year after.
Another part of the District Project Achievement competition for Junior and Senior 4-H'ers is the creation of a portfolio.
Portfolios are like a resume of the work 4-H’ers have completed in their project area.
When Senior 4-H’ers place first at District Project Achievement, they are invited to attempt “Mastery” in their project area at State Congress.
Research shows a strong positive relationship between successful 4-H’ers and Project Achievement.
(5th & 6th graders) 4-H'ers who have been selected as county winners will compete with other county winners in their district for district honors.
(7th & 8th graders) Junior 4-H'ers have the possibility to attempt "Mastery" at the district level.
(9th-12th graders) When Senior 4-H’ers place first at District Project Achievement, they are invited to attempt “Mastery” in their project area at State Congress.
