With the help of the student's agricultural teacher, a project is completed in one of the four categories. The first category is entrepreneurship. This involves the student owning and operating an agricultural business. An example of this business is a lawn-care-service business or holiday, poinsettia production company. Placement is the second category, which involves the student obtaining a job or internship at a farm or ranch. Research and experimentation are completed by the student performing a scientific experiment. The final category is exploratory, which involves the student evaluating careers in agriculture.
