What is Project Achievement?
4-H Project Achievement is a cornerstone in the Georgia 4-H program. Students select a topic of interest and prepare a demonstration including visuals. As students progress the competition also includes a portfolio of yearly activities. Fifth grade students present as a part of in school 4-H programs and also have the opportunity to attend district competition. Older youth attend a weekend competition at Rock Eagle.
Why do Project Achievement?
It’s a way to stand out and enhance your abilities for your future career opportunities and college applications. The competition is centered around a topic of interest to you, so you will spend time learning about something you love and sharing with others. Senior competitors who place first go on to State Congress, an all expense paid week in Atlanta with more competition, tours, shopping, trip to Six Flags, formal banquets, and more! In addition, Project Achievement is not only a competition, but a weekend of fun with current and new friends!
DIFFERENT GRADES COMPETE AT DIFFERENT LEVELS OF COMPETITION.
