Project Record Books

Due to Leader: September 1st

Due to 4-H office: September 15th

Now's the time to finish up those 4-H Project Record Books before summer ends. All 4-H members should complete a book that matches their club's project area. Click here to see a list of books. Make sure you double check your spelling, math, and neatness. Judges will provide feedback on every book to help you improve your record keeping skills. As a reminder, project record books are a requirement to be a "member in good standing" and receive special county level awards in recognition of your work over the past year. Contact your 4-H leader or 4-H office with questions.
