4-H Project Guidelines, Quality Assurance & Project Judging/Skillathon Information

Project Guidelines 

Project guidelines are used as a resource for families. Each set of guidelines provides species/project area specific information when it comes to the requirements, opportunities, deadlines & fair information (if applicable). We encourage families to print and/or save a copy. Guidelines are updated each year. 

*Project Guidelines links will become activated as they are completed with the assistance of the species' advisors.
