4-H Project Achievement

Project Achievement is one of our core 4-H programs, and we value your contribution in developing our young people.

A 4-H demonstration is a "show & tell" presentation using posters and other visuals that teaches others something about your project area.

Project Achievement offers more than 50 different areas of interest from General Recreation and Outdoor Recreation.
