What is Project Achievement?

Project Achievement is the biggest contest of the 4-H year! In this competition, students choose a project area that interests them, research a topic, write a speech, and present an oral presentation with visual aids both to their peers and to judges. Project Achievement aims to boost public speaking skills and self confidence, all while 4-H'ers grow their knowledge about a topic they are passtionate about.

 

Each age group compete at different levels of competition. For more information, see your grade below:
