4-H Record Books

Completing a 4-H Record Book is a great way to learn more about your project and capture all the amazing things you’ve done during the year. By keeping records, you will also have an advantage when applying for awards, special trips, scholarships, and 4-H leadership positions. Additionally, youth with exceptional record books are recognized at our annual Achievement & Recognition Program. Keeping continual records on PDF fillable Record Book forms is one option (paper forms are also available). Another is to use blank paper, a notebook, or calendar and then transfer the information later into the report forms. Some clubs have specific record book requirements – your club leader will explain any requirements to you.
