Project Areas

4-H’ers work with parents, volunteers, and other 4-H’ers who share similar projects. In many cases, clubs are formed around a project area, such as county horse clubs. Project work not only increases a 4-H’ers knowledge of a particular subject of interest to them, but project work can also prepare them for a career in that field, such as veterinary science. Scholarships, prizes, awards, and special recognition are also rewards for project work.
