Members choose between various life skills projects like sewing, crafts, photography, heritage, scrapbooking, and/or livestock projects such as dairy, beef, light horse, sheep, dog, poultry, and goat.
Choose something that interests you or that you would like to learn. We recommend that first-year members choose 1 or 2 projects only.
Project meetings are usually held once a month (sometimes more when needed to complete project requirements). Project meetings can be 1 -2 hours long, may include a field trip, etc., but are always hands-on. The project leader schedules the meetings, and members are notified. If you are ever in doubt – call your project leader. Each project has requirements – every member will receive a project newsletter, and your leader will ensure you cover what is necessary. Life Skills projects usually begin in November, while Livestock projects typically start later in the 4-H year, as they are busier in the spring/summer months.
