Record Keeping Tips:

As you work on your record books, particularly your project sheets, you need to keep in mind the difference between a project and an exhibit. You enroll in Project areas – Sewing and Needlecrafts, Beef, Dog, Visual Arts, Photography…… What you take to fair is an exhibit – an outgrowth of what you have learned in your project area.
Projects—A 4H project is an area of emphasis in which a 4H’er enrolls, studies, learns and keeps records. The 4-H 200 lists 34 different Project areas. Find them listed here in the 4H 200 publication
Exhibits—A 4H exhibit is an item resulting from project work that 4H’er has chosen to bring to the fair and have evaluated by a judge.
A project record sheet should cover :
A: What you learned– was it measuring ingredients, how to run the blender, how to use the arc welder, planning a nutritious meal, fitting a calf, comparison shopping, how to shoot a bow, tracking wildlife, programming a robot…
B: The exhibit or exhibits you took to fair —IF you took anything—you may not have or you may have taken 3 things in that project area. For example—you exhibited brownies, a pie and a poster with cost comparison. You do not complete a project sheet for each fair exhibit.
