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 Jill prior to May 1st.
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.
