Record Books

*file17662* Keeping records is an important part of the 4-H program. Record Books give members an opportunity to reflect on their yearly work. They document skill development and learning experiences in a written report. 4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.

Members should keep records for each project.  At the end of the year, they are to turn in a Personal Development Report-style record book to their club leader.

Here are the most used forms for you to download. You can fill these out and save them for your records.
