About Recordbooks:

Why is it important you keep a record of your 4-H activities? Because, by recording your activities you can remember all the fun you’ve had so far, and set future goals! Keeping records of 4-H projects could help you when you apply for college scholarships too! 4-H Record books are books you make to record your annual projects.

Recordbook covers (pictured above) can be purchased at the county extension office!

Specific Categories
