Record Books

recordsWhy have 4-H record books? 4-H Record Books serve a variety of purposes in the Edwards County 4-H program.

  • 4-H Record Books give members an opportunity to reflect on their yearly work. They document their skill development and their learning experiences in a written report. 4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.

  • 4-H Record Books encourage members to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles. Completion of record books awards 4-H members for participation in 4-H activities, which provides an incentive for participation, learning, and achievement.

  • Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where 4-H members record project and club work. Record management is a life skill to identify, create, classify, archive, and keep records. The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.
