NAME: Chloe Prevost
CLUB: Piney 4-H Clovers, MB
PROJECT: Mastering Starting a Business

Q. What are meetings like for the Mastering Starting a Business project?

A. We went over different businesses in our community and tried to learn more about them by visiting them to hopefully help us with our businesses.

Q. What’s your favourite thing you learned through your 4-H project?

A. I really enjoyed sales and marketing because we had lots of fun pitching random items in the house like toilet paper. We also got to design logos and our leader was very kind and put our logos on some mugs and pens to show off at achievements.

What makes the 4-H program unique is that it’s all about what areas you are interested to experiment in. If you have an idea you’d like to learn more about and it’s not on your province’s project list – most provinces offer a design-your-own-project option, often referred to as a self-determined project.
