There are over 100 different 4-H Projects that youth can participate in, explore, and show at the fair. From animal science to hiking, citizenship to gardening, STEM to theater, there are so many ways that you can get involved and so many opportunities to try something new! A ‘project’ is simply a topic that you can explore.
If you’d like to learn more about the different projects you can explore please visit the Wisconsin 4-H Projects Page.
Once you have found the projects that interest you be sure to sign up for them in your 4HOnline account. You can try new projects whenever you like, but there is a project sign-up deadline if you want to show the project in the fair. Also, some projects, such as animal projects, have additional requirements to show in the fair. It is important that you talk with your project leader so you can meet the requirements to show at the fair.
It should also be noted that there are different activities/events hosted for some projects throughout the year that are different from the fair. These include, but are not limited to, events such as the 4-H Foods Revue and Ashley for the Arts Event.
