Emerald Star Program


The Emerald Star Program is designed for intermediate and senior 4-H members. The Emerald Star Project's purpose includes:

  1. Providing an opportunity for 4-H members to develop projects in their community or in 4-H (beyond the club level)
  2. Improving, creating and expanding 4-H programs
  3. Helping individual 4-H members grow and improve in the areas of organization, leadership and project planning

This program is designed to help youth learn about project planning, organization and presentation. Typically, youth develop an action plan for some type of multi-club event. They then organize and facilitate the event. After completion and presentation of their project, they are awarded with the Emerald Star ranking
