4-H Project

A 4-H Project is any learning experience of six hours or more.  Youth can complete a project in just about anything.  To find all of the projects we offer check out our Project List.  Youth can complete a Project Book or a Record Book in any project.  A Project Book is a guide of activities and learning experiences that a 4-H’er can work on individually or in a 4-H club.  A Record Book is an organized method of keeping records on a project, for example beef, dairy, shooting sports, or clothing created. 

In Sumter County youth are encouraged to complete and turn in a record of your project accomplishments for each year.  In order to receive a 4-H year pin you must turn in a completed Project or Record Book. Youth turning in a completed book will also receive a project medal.  To have a Completed book you must follow all guidelines.
