4-H Evaluation

Spark Survey Results

The Spark Surveys are open twice a year for 4-H youth to fill out in the Online Record Book (ORB). The surveys allow us to take a "snapshot" of the 4-H'ers in the Fall and then again in the Spring. They allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of the 4-H program in developing youth in various areas.
