Remember to organize your 4-H record book.
It is recommended that each project area should be separated with a “tab” divider, and arranged with the most recent material on top in each project area.
Record Keeping Tips:
1. Be Neat.
2. Check spelling, grammar, and math.
3. Be sure to tell what you learned in each project throughout the year.
4. Please do not include the following items:  fair ribbons, feed tags, 4-H newsletter, club programs, or stall cards.
5. Goals are what you want to learn in each project and includes three parts:
          • ACTION - how you are going to do it.
          • RESULT  - what you will do
          • TIMETABLE - when you plan to have it completed. 
Ask yourself: Do you have control over all 3 parts of the goal? 
Examples:  I want to learn how to make chocolate chips cookies to serve at the March  4-H meeting. I want to train my dog to sit before county fair time. NOT : I want to win a blue ribbon at fair.
