The Diamond Clover Project:

• Be a challenge that allows you to develop life skills (planning, organizing, follow through).  
• Should involve others in the community and develop community partnerships.
• Plan should include how to maintain the project to have lasting impact beyond just one day or one event.  
• Should take time to develop a detailed plan, to organize, implement, conduct, promote, evaluate and provide follow-up information of the success of your program
• Should take at least an estimated 100 hours to implement and complete
The sky is your limit….use your creativity and imagination.  The Diamond Clover Project is your project (4-Hers) not your club leaders, parents, committee, or friends!!!
