The Leaders Association Achievement & Recognition Committee would like you to have the opportunity to record and reflect your past year of achievements.  We have several opportunities: My 4-H Story, Record book, Creative Works (Video, Slideshow or Creative Way) to show what you have achieved.  We hope to see your achievements of the past year.  All are welcome to do this process including Cloverbuds.

  • My 4-H Story – The 4-H story form is on the Washington County 4-H website.  Some prompts are on this form for you to think about and give you suggestions what to include in your story. http://go.wisc.edu/my4hstory
  • Standard Record book Format –   Using the record book binders and forms below, fill out all areas/sheets.  Books will need to be turned in to your General Leader.  You will need to complete a record book if you want to apply for selected project awards.  
  • Creative Works– Let’s be creative! – Share your 4-H experiences for the year in a scrapbook, video (no longer than 15 minutes) http://go.wisc.edu/my4hvideo, or slideshow. Think about what you felt, learned and experienced in your 4-H year and tell your story.  Send your electronic submissions to your General Leader.
