Make It a Project!   Your participation in the 4-H International Exchange Program can be the basis of your own unique 4-H self-determined project! Every self-determined project requires the 4-H member to identify and complete areas of interest and related activities, learning experiences, leadership/citizenship activities, and a brief report. Just like other projects, self-determined projects are eligible for fair participation. Visit the Self-Determined Projects and Idea Starter webpage for more information.
