4-H Project Resources
4-H projects should be selected during enrollment in October of each 4-H year. the Project Selection Guide is a great resource for getting started in your selections. Projects may then be added or dropped at any point up until May 1st of the current 4-H year. Any changes to project enrollment should be submitted in writing to the Extension Office by filling out an Add/Drop form, or by a parent/guardian listed on the 4-Her's enrollment emailing changes to Lauren, Darl, or Clarissa prior to May 1st.
Lauren Hull- firstname.lastname@example.org
Darl Henson- email@example.com
Clarissa Sents- firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important to set goals and to make a record of steps you are taking to complete those goals throughout the 4-H year. This will not only help you be successful in your projects, but will also make completing your KAP's so much easier. The "Records" section of the 4-H Family Handbook is a great resource for setting and achieving goals throughout the year.
Remember to be S.M.A.R.T when setting goals for your project.
S-Specific (Who, What, When, Where, Why)
M-Measurable (How much, How Many, How when I know when it's accomplished?)
A- Attainable/Achievable (What is most important to you?)
R- Realistic (An objective toward which you are willing to work.)
T-Time Bound (A time frame triggers the motivation to complete your goals.)
Below are links to resources for popular Coffey County 4-H projects that may help aid you in your accomplishments throughout the 4-H year. The Extension Office and many local libraries also have project resources in binders available for check out. Be sure to contact the Extension Office if you need any direction getting started in your projects this year.
