                                                  As a parent or supporter, I realize that animal projects require a considerable amount of expense
                                                  and labor. I will support this youth in his/her efforts and allow him/her to learn as much as possible
                                                   from the experience. The youth is expected to be responsible for labor, care, and management
                                                      decisions affecting the project. I will help where needed by giving guidance and instruction.
