Assembling Your 4-H Records

This is a suggested order of how your record book should look and pages you should have included. This makes a good check off list.

This is a written statement from your leader telling us about your 4-H club work. This sheet will be removed from your record book after it has been evaluated.
4. 4-H Award Information Form pdf (word) (Include only if applying for an award.) This form is required for each project area you are appling for. Also for each project area; complete one of the forms listed below that fits your grade level. (Grade as of May 2016).
