PROJECT BOOKS: HOW TO GET ONE IN 2021
We've got you covered with LOTS of ways to obtain project books this year! One of these options is right for you:
Download one for free. Select from a dozen popular titles in the Perfect Stay-at-Home Projects collection. This year, a selection of 4-H Cloverbud activities is available too.
Order and pick up project books in your county office. If you would rather purchase a printed copy of a Perfect Stay-at-Home Project or any other project book, check with your club advisor and county educator. Ohio residents get the best price on printed books when they order and pick up their purchases through local Extension offices.
- Buy one online. Like last year, you also can order directly from extensionpubs.osu.edu. Ohio residents receive free shipping on orders of $20 or more with coupon FREE2021. Books cost slightly more this way, but orders can be shipped directly to any Ohio address. There is no restriction on the number of times a coupon can be used. See our printable Ordering Is Easy instructions. Please review your order carefully. Extension Publishing is not able to accept returns.
- Make your own. Members can create their own self-determined projects with the My Own Stay-at-Home Project idea starter.

Complete descriptions of Ohio 4-H projects are in the Family Guide and on Ohio 4-H Project Central, an interactive web site that includes sample pages, ratings, and comments. Project Central works best when you use Firefox or Chrome web browsers. A step-by-step guide is here.
Publications can be purchased directly from the Ohio State University Extension Publications or from local county Extension offices, where Ohio 4-H club advisors, club members, and other Ohio residents get the best price. Other state 4-H offices can benefit from our Partner Pricing program.
