Georgia 4-H Project Achievement

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.
