Cloverleaf Project Achievement
4th - 6th graders
*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cloverleaf Project Achievement will be held at the County level on Saturday, April 24, 2021*
This public-speaking competition encourages 4-H'ers to choose a project of interest, perform research, and present a speech sharing their knowledge. The entire process encourages hands-on learning, improves communication skills, and builds confidence.
The district event where they compete with other 4-H'ers is called District Project Achievement (DPA), and it is typically a one-day event in Douglasville, GA.

Junior Project Achievement
7th & 8th graders
Building on knowledge and experience gained during Cloverleaf Project Achievement, Junior 4-H'ers add a second component to their project: a portfolio. The 7th and 8th graders (or, "juniors" as they're known in 4-H lingo) still present or perform in their chosen area of interest; however, the portfolio provides additional documentation of the 4-H'ers work in their subject area over.
The portfolio covers a 12-month period from Jan. 1st - Dec. 31st during which the Junior 4-H'er documents community service projects and teen leadership activities in their area of interest. Junior Project Achievement is a 3-day, 2-night event that takes place at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, GA.
Senior Project Achievement
9th - 12th graders
Both presentations and portfolios are more detailed and longer in length for 4-H'ers competing in Senior Project Achievement. District winners have the ability to compete and advance to the State-level competition (known as State Congress).
If a Senior 4-H'er wins at the State level, they advance to Nationals (known as National Congress). The district event is held in conjunction with Junior Project Achievement and is a 3-day, 2-night event at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, GA.
