Lincoln County 4-H Leaders’ Association, Inc. and University of Wisconsin-Extension 4-H Youth Development in Lincoln County sponsor two 4-H Project Discovery Days each year.  One in spring in Tomahawk and a second in fall in Merrill.  These events allow youth from all over the county to sample the projects that the 4-H program offers.  Anyone is welcome to attend and you do not need to be a 4-H member to participate.  To see what past Project Discovery Days look like, click here.

Sessions are taught by 4-H youth and adult leaders, as well as community volunteers.

What can be done at a Project Discovery Day workshop?  Almost anything!

Sometimes coming up with an idea of what to do can be tough!  Projects that can be entered in the fair are popular Project Day projects. The key is to offer a project that interests you!
