Why is it important you keep a record of your 4-H activities? Because, by recording your activities you can remember all the fun you’ve had so far, and set future goals! Keeping records of 4-H projects could help you when you apply for college scholarships too! 4-H Recordbooks are books you make to record your annual projects. The “At a Glance Guide” will help you organize your Recordbook.
Recordkeeping is an important aspect of the 4-H program. Recordbooks allow youth to see just how much they have accomplished in their main projects. County Recordbook Judging is held in June. District Recordbook Judging is held in July. First place books from each county advance to District in three age divisions: Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors.
Volunteers are needed to judge recordbooks! If you are interested in serving as a judge, contact the Kinney County Extension Office.
