4-H Record Book

A record book is an accumulation of all 4-H project work done in one or more years.  4-H members should add to their record book each year, including new information over their project experiences in the past year.  Members should describe the short-term projects they participated in or completed that lead towards the long-term 4-H project work goals.  Record books should include project information that shows the size and scope of the project work (how many were involved, number of items produced, number of hours spent on project, etc).
