Projects


4-H projects are a great way to explore your interest in a vast variety of areas!
 
To begin your 4-H adventure, start looking at the many project areas that 4-H has to offer. You may choose one or more projects from more than 45 different areas. There is a 4-H project for everyone! Projects are fun to do alone and with your friends.
Think about:

  • An interest you’d like to explore
  • A hobby you’d like to learn more about
  • A topic of interest shared by you and your family
  • Something that is fun for you

Remember to select projects that you can get help with from your:

  • parents/guardian
  • grandparents
  • friends
  • other 4-H members

Work with your parents/guardian and leader to select your 4-H projects. Let’s say you want to learn how to take a photograph, feed a dog, build a birdhouse, or plant a garden. When you learn those skills, you also learn life skills such as:

  • how to make decisions and set goals
  • how to get organized
  • how to keep records
  • how to work with others

The Dubuque County Youth Staff is sad to report that the 2015 Dubuque County Fair 4-H/FFA Poultry Show has been cancelled by the Iowa Turkey Federation along with the Iowa Poultry Association due to the H5N2 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).  This cancellation includes all live bird exhibitions at county fairs, the Iowa State, and other gatherings of birds due to the avian influenza.
