Record Books

Wyoming 4-H Record Book - Online

Good record keeping is a skill you will use your entire life. AND, believe it or not, it CAN be fun! One tip . . . don't wait until you only have a few days left to finish (or start) your Record Book. This causes frustration! You will enjoy doing your Record Book so much more if you keep up on it. Really!!!

4-H Record Books serve a variety of purposes in the 4-H Program. While society has changed, the goals of teaching record-keeping to youth remain the same.

  • 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 and develop plans to meet those goals. Completion of the Project Records 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. Records management (RM) is an industry-standard practice of identifying, creating, classifying, archiving and preserving records. The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.

4-H Record Books are an educational component of the 4-H Youth Development Program and are required for completion of the 4-H year. Members have the option to have their record book judged for competition and prizes or to be turned in for completion only.
