What is Project Achievement?
Project Achievement is skills for a lifetime! 4-H'ers develop leadership, creativity, public speaking skills, recordkeeping, and more through this program! Specifically, students pick a project area of interest, research the topic, write a presentation, and present it to others. As students become older, a record-keeping component that promotes independent thinking, research, and implementation is added.
For a 5th Grade Cloverleaf 4-H'er, the presentation will begin at school or the county level competition and advance to the area or district level competition. The 4-H project is two parts: a 2-3 page report and a poster/tri-board. 4-H projects are due at school to the 4-H'ers science teacher. Mrs. Yearwood will collect the students' 4-H Projects to be judged at the 4-H Office by retired educators and volunteers. The students will not be present for the judging. Students will be notified of winners. All first-place 4-H Project Fair winners will be invited to attend the district competition.
