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. During 5th Grade 4-H Club Meetings in November, 4-H'ers discussed starting their projects. This information can be found in their November newsletter. The first part of the project is a two to three-page report which was due at the January club meeting. The second part of the project is a poster or tri-board that was due in February. 5th Grade Project Fair was held on February 19th and 20th of 2020. Winners received a letter to their parents inviting them to 5th Grade Cloverleaf DPA. Parent meetings and after-school practices were held on February 24th, 25th, and 26th. Below you can find the materials covered at these meetings. Those attending must have a completed Code of Conduct and Medical Release Form.
