Record Keeping

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. 

Objectives for 4-H Record Keeping

  • 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.
