4-H Projects

Tennessee 4-H offers its members a choice of 26 program areas. 4-H'ers are encouraged to choose a project or projects and build their knowledge of the project subject material. They also complete activities related to the project area, keep records of their activities, give written and oral demonstrations about their projects, and participate in judging and other contests involving their project.

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 the rewards for project work.
