  2. 2. debra.ivey@ces.uwex.edu or Karri.mccarthy@ces.uwex.edu Iowa County 4-H Family -- This is your guide...a 4-H project is an area that you want to learn more about during the year. There are projects on just about any topic you'd like to study and explore, from art to woodworking, from trees to rabbits, from clothing to rockets. Remember, you'll learn more than "subject matter" as you complete your projects. You will learn many "life" skills that you will use every day of your life, such as understanding yourself, communicating, problem solving, decision making, and working with others. If this is your first year in 4-H, choose one or two projects to concentrate on. Usually you can spend more than one year in a project unit because there are enough ideas there to span two or three years. Most 4-H'ers take the levels in order, but what you decide to take as part of your project work is up to you. If you have questions, please talk to your club leader. If you are re-enrolling in 4-H, look over the information at the top of the enrollment form. Make corrections to any of that information that has changed since last year (change of address, phone, etc.). Parent and member should both sign the form. Return the form to your club leader. All enrollment forms must be signed by the club leader. To re-enroll in a project that is already on your enrollment form, simply circle the Y to the left of that project name. To enroll in a new project, write the code number assigned to that project on your enrollment form. Also write in the name of the project. Indicate if you need project literature for this project. Because of the cost of 4-H literature, we suggest recycling literature within your club and requesting only one copy per family of materials. Adult leaders will also use this enrollment form to enroll or re-enroll as a general or project leader. Enrollment for adults is done in the same way as youth, but notice that there are project code numbers for leaders. If you are a project leader for a project that does not have a leader code listed, use the member number as your project code. Please check the "No. of Years in 4-H" for accuracy. Additional forms are available from the club general leader or the Extension Office, 935-0391. 2009-2010 Project Selection Guide Iowa County 4-H YOUNGER MEMBERS 10200 YOUTH LEADERSHIP LDR Resources: 07903, Leadership Mentor Guide for Grades K-5 10350 CLOVERBUD LDR 07904, Leadership Mentor Guide for Grades 6-12 Resources: 4H414, Helping Youth Grow into 4-H Webpage: 4h.uwex.edu/onlinpro/leadership.cfm 05560, 4-H Discovery Program for 6-8 Yr.
