4-H Day at the Capitol (7-12th)

Each year, 4-H Day at the Capitol is held during a session of the General Assembly so that 4-H’ers can schedule visits with their legislators, serve as House and Senate pages, see top 4-H’ers honored, and hear our State 4-H President address the state legislature. 4-H Day at the Capitol also features a luncheon, hosted by the Georgia 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees, that offers 4-H youth the opportunity to eat with and meet legislators from around the state.

Project Achievement

Georgia 4-H Project Achievement empowers young people with skills for a lifetime. Students choose a project area of interest, research the topic, and write and present a presentation. 4-H’ers develop leadership, creativity, public speaking, record keeping, and other skills. As students become older, a record keeping component that promotes independent thinking, research and implementation is added. Cloverleaf and Junior 4-H’ers (4th – 8th graders), begin competition in their school or county and advance to the district level. Senior competitions (9th-12th grade) encourage youth to become more involved in their project areas and advance to the state and national levels.

State 4-H Council

State 4-H Council, a Georgia 4-H core program, is the constitutional meeting of the Georgia 4-H Council and includes the election of Georgia 4-H State Officers.  Registration for State 4-H Council is open to any current 8th-12th grade 4-H members.
