Consumer Decision Making Project

Through the 4-H Consumer Education Project, 4-H members learn to make wise decisions when shopping. Project activities also focus on the economy, money management, consumer rights and responsibilities, and the environment. Consumer Education Projects are usually conducted during the winter and summer months of the 4-H year, based on the availability of project leaders. The term of the project greatly depends upon when contests, such as the Consumer Decision Making Contest, are conducted. 4-H members interested in the Consumer Education Project should be willing to commit the appropriate amount of time to it, depending on their level of involvement. This includes project meetings and other learning experiences. There is a D-10 Contest that will be held in conjunction with the contest held at the San Antonio Livestock Show on February 18, 2012. For those interested an informational will be held on October 20, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Extension Office.

This is a great contest that provides some essential life skills. Hope to see you on the 20th.
