Choosing a Project
Are you ready to decide on a project?
When selecting projects, think about:
- an interest you would like to explore
- a hobby you would like to learn more about
- a topic of interest shared by you and your family
- something that is fun for you
Remember to choose projects that you can get help from your
- other 4-H members and leaders
Projects help you to grow and to have real-life experiences. Project work is the "learn by doing" part of 4-H. Let's say you want to learn how to build a birdhouse, take photos, care for a bucket calf, or learn to cook. When you learn those skills, you will also learn such life skills as:
- how to make decisions
- how to organize yourself, your time, or your money
- how to work with and get along with others
- how to speak in front of a group
- how to work together as a member of a team
4-H has lots of fun ways to learn beyond your project work and club meetings, too. For now, start by choosing a project. To look at the Woodson County Project Selection guide, click here. If you need help or more information, contact your club leader or the Extension Office.
