We had an AWESOME time at the 4-H Game Changers  workshop on National Youth Science Day! Seven 4-H’ers and 4-H friends had fun at this pizza party and computer science experience at the Black Hawk County Extension Office on October 1st. We ‘Hacked Our Harvest’ and ‘Pitched Our Passion’ while learning computer science coding skills, terminology, and expanding our problem solving skills as a team.

Record Books are due into the extension office by October 4th. All books will need to go to their club leaders before coming to our office. 

Philosophy for 4-H Record Keeping The purpose of 4-H record keeping is to teach how to keep records, which is an important life skill. Record keeping is an ongoing process that does not end when the 4-H year ends. 

  • To learn how to set goals, how to make plans for action, and how to decide how well you did (evaluation).
  • To learn the skills of record keeping and organization to use now and in the future.
  • To learn to communicate and summarize.
  • To learn responsibility by completing a task.
  • To evaluate information that will market personal skills through future resumes and application forms.
