4-H Club Project Categories
There are numerous 4-H projects from which to choose that are described on the following pages. Each project has a brief description and what the roundup requirements are for that project. Many of the project books contain what the member must complete for roundup in the book. Members are encouraged to take projects that interest him or her. Other groups and schools may also use 4-H curriculum free of charge.
We encourage members and parents or guardians to look through the project book when you receive it to make certain that the project can be completed by the member or with some help from an adult or teen leader from the club. If you think that the project cannot be completed, just return the book and try to find a project that suits the member and his or her abilities or interests.
After each project, you will find the “Roundup Requirements” for that particular project. For each project, the member must have his or her completed record and/or project book with them at the time of judging. Many of the project or record books list what the member is required to do for roundup within its text. A story is to be written or typed for each project.
Please note: Roundup Requirements are not necessarily the same as Fair Entry Requirements. Before entering a project in the fair, please be sure to check that fair's tabloid for entry requirements.
Where ages appear, it is referring to the 4-H member’s age(s) as of January 1 of the current year.
