4-H opened the door for young people to learn leadership skills and revolutionized how youth connected to practical, hands-on learning experiences outside the classroom.


Youth will go head to head to see who can make the most money transforming unexpected diamonds in the rough into high dollar gems.

FCH Project

Youth can spend up to a maximum of $50 on the item they will transform. Supplies may be purchased separately BUT will be added to overall cost of item. So, keep your receipts for all items purchased and a running total of items used that you already had on hand.
