4-H Projects & Curriculum
4-H Projects and Curriculum 

4-H Projects and Curriculum fall under 4-H's three priority program areas: Science, Citizenship and Leadership, and Healthy Living. Youth can choose from more than 60 projects that focus on science, engineering and technology, animals and agriculture, food and nutrition, outdoor adventures, marine science, public speaking, art, wildlife, and much more. Visit the Curriculum Clearinghouse and the Projects Handouts Inventory to get an idea of how much you can do in 4-H.

Each 4-H member enrolls in at least one project each year. At the end of the year, a Project Book can be combined with supporting materials and turned in as a Project Record. Below, youth will find all of the information necessary to complete a Project Book and Project Record Book. Project Record Books are due to the Broward 4-H office no later than the second Monday in August.

If you are unsure if an older version of 4-H curriculum is a complete Project Book or an activity only, please contact us the Broward 4-H office. 4-H staff will be happy to answer all of your project-related questions.

Please review this Action Plan (PDF) and Project Fact Sheet (PDF), Preparing Your Project Book Guide before proceeding.

General Project Record Books
To receive recognition for project competition, each 4-H participant must submit at least one General Project Record Book by the second Monday in August.

Please choose a project summary or report based on age level by September 1 of the current 4-H year:

Then include one Project Evaluation and age-level project report score sheet or summary review sheet (below) with each completed Project Record Book. PROJECT RECORD BOOKS WITHOUT EVALUATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED (unless member opted out of evaluations at the beginning of the year).

Achievement Record Books
Achievement Records, which consist of an Achievement Record Book and supplemental materials, are complete records of a 4-H member's annual participation in the program. Juniors, Intermediates, and Seniors may submit the following Achievement Record Books and supplemental materials for additional recognition:

Golden Clover: To be considered for 4-H Member of the Year awards, a member must submit the Golden Clover Application. To submit a Golden Clover Application, youth must also submit one General Project Record (any focus) by the deadline (the second Monday in August). 

Golden Horseman: 4-H will no longer have a Golden Horseman book due to the lack of participation. All participants who would like to submit for the title of Member of the Year should complete a Golden Clover book.

An evaluation is included in each Record Book. RECORD BOOKS WITHOUT EVALUATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED (unless member opted out of evaluations at the beginning of the year).
