4-H Record Book
The 4-H program has a long history of record keeping. The focus reflects the importance of this life skill in our daily lives. In 4-H, young people have tracked their activities, events, profits and losses, skill development and learning experiences, and much more using the iconic 4-H Record Book. In addition to record keeping, the 4-H Record Book gives members an opportunity to reflect on their year, measure their achievements and growth, and set goals, and develop plans to meet those goals.
State Records Books are due to the Extension Office April 9, 2021 and are required to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
A 4-H Record Book is Not Required for 4-H Membership.
- Why Have 4-H Record Books?

- 2021 Score Sheet
The McClain County Score Sheet is a document we use to track your participation throughout this 4-H year and help you earn special awards and recognition. Each activity that was offered between April 2020 and April 2021, will receive a certain amount of points.
There is no mandatory points needed to qualify for the Junior Achievement Trip. The Jr. Achievement Trip rewards McClain County 4-H junior members for a job well done throughout the year. This years' Junior Achievement Trip location is yet to be determined.
For older 4-H members, the Score Sheets will determine if you have received Outstanding Member status for the current 4-H year. This award will be presented at the 4-H Achievement Banquet in May. The Score Sheets also determines your participation in State 4-H Roundup and District Leadership Conference.
