The 4-H Self Determined Project enables you to develop your own project. It may include working on a more advanced phase of an existing project or in an area where no project already exists. The topic you choose should develop from something you are interested in, would like to do research or experimentation on, or want to learn about. This advanced project enables you to set your own goals and objectives, design a plan of action and carry out a project based on your topic of interest. Because you are unique, your program should be designed with your talents and interests in mind.
The Self-Determined e-record books can be found on the Colorado 4-H website and you can download the Self-Determined Manual(PDF, 137KB).
