The 4-H building is a hub of activity each day. You will find projects on display and demonstrations in progress! Each day the 4-H Building has different events scheduled (listed on schedule page). It doesn't matter if you are a Clover Kid or a grandparent, we have something for you!
Projects are the heart of the 4-H program and Missouri 4-H offers many different projects that fall into 8 topic areas:
- 4-H Project Areas
- Arts and communications
- Citizenship and Service
- Growth and leadership
- Home and consumer life
- Nutrician and health
- Outdoors and nature
- Plants and animals
- Science and technology
No matter how 4-Hers experience the program (traditional clubs, SPIN clubs, or an afterschool setting), projects provide the hands-on learning experience that help youth explore and grow.
Project typically are led by a project leader and take a minimum of 6 contact hours to complete. The number of projects that can be taken at a time depends on your county guidelines. Remember when choosing projects, it is better to do a few projects really well, than choose a lot and not have time to complete them.
Demonstrations are an important way for youth to gain confidence and show their knowledge. Learning to speak in front of others is a skill that will aid any youth in whatever path they choose. Youth in 4-H are ask to start with small demonstrations in front of their project leaders and peers. Then their 4-H club, and eventually in front of larger audiences. 4-H youth can sign up to give demonstrations in the 4-H building at the state fair.
