Records logoThe 4-H program has a long history of record keeping. In 4-H, young people track their activities, events, skill development, and learning experiences, and much more using the 4-H Project Record Book.

Why 4-H project record books?

To give children an opportunity to reflect on what they’ve learned and accomplished through a year. They document new skills and experiences in a written report to measure their achievements and growth. To encourage children to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to overcome obstacles. To award 4-H members for participation in 4-H activities which provides an incentive for participation, learning, and achievement.
