Choosing a Project

Here are some things for you and your parents to think about as you choose 4-H projects:

  • What interests you?
  • Does your county 4-H program already have a leader for this project?
  • How much will the project cost? Some livestock projects, for instance, require a significant financial investment.
  • Do you have enough space to complete the project and can you get the equipment you’ll need?
  • Can your parents or another adult help you with the project (for example, drive you to meetings)?
  • Will the project help you grow as an individual?
  • How much time will the project take? Some projects take a full year to complete, while others take just a few days or weeks. You may want to do only one or two projects in your first year of 4-H.
  • Does the project sound like it's fun and worth the effort?
