4-H Project Record Books
The 4-H program has a long history of record keeping. The focus reflects the importance of this life skill in our daily lives. Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where you record project and club work using a standard format.

Benefits of completing a 4-H Record Book:

  • Practice Records Management - Track your activities, events, profits and losses, skill development and learning experiences. In this competency skill you identify, create, classify, archive and preserve records.
  • Reflect on your yearly work - Document your skill development and learning experiences in a written report.

  • Measure your achievements and growth throughout your years in 4-H.

  • Set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and record how you may have had to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles. 

All 4-H Project Record Books and portfolios are due at the county level for competition by January 29th by 5pm.

Books turned in after this date will not be accepted. Please make sure that you have your 4-H Club Leader and your Parent/Helper sign your book.

All 4-H Horse Club Members who want to earn an Eligibility Card to show in 2021 must complete a Record Book. If you have questions, please contact Courtney at 919-989-5380

This year 4-H has upgraded to 4-H Online 2.0! Re-enrollment for 2020-2021 opens soon! Be on the lookout for more information.
