  1. Project Book Survey
    Each year we ask members and volunteers at the Ohio 4-H Conference to take a survey about 4-H project books. This year we collected over 150 responses! The survey asks mainly about preferences for print or digital project books, although questions about basic demographic information—such as county, role in 4 H, and years in 4 H—and a place for comments are included too. It is a quick and anonymous process; no personal identifying information is asked.
