4-H members may keep records in a variety of ways. Recordkeeping is only limited by your imagination, so have fun and share what you have learned this year in 4-H. We have listed the forms below to use as a guide in your recordkeeping system or as pages in your recordbook. Some ideas for recordkeeping:
- Traditional three ring binder, using the forms below
- Scrapbook, with stories and pictures
- Blog or website
Project Records: Once form is used per project, not per Exhibit. Project Records should tell what you have learned in your project area and not just what you exhibited at fair. Include pictures and newspaper clippings to show your accomplishments if you would like.
Market Animal Project Worksheets: Market Beef, Sheep, Swine and Meat Goat members may use one worksheet per year for each project area.
Breeding Animal Project Worksheets: Breeding Beef, Sheep, Swine and Meat Goat projects use this worksheet for each project year.
Other Project Areas: Use these worksheets for other project areas as needed.
Videos, powerpoints, etc must be submitted on a flash drive labeled with your name and club.
Three ring binders work best for a record book.
Each project area should have a divider with a tab for easy finding.
Project areas can be kept in any order by are more easily located if alphabetized.
Record books can be divided in years or project areas, however always have the most current year in the front of the book or section.
Be sure to share what you learned in each project throughout the year.
Fair goal sheets may be included but additional explanations of project area learning may be needed.
Remember to include all things you have done in project area, not just what you exhibited at fair.
