4-H Record Keeping, Awards & Grants

4-H members achieve awesome things every year. Keeping track of what you do in 4-H can help you to talk about your accomplishments with others. Many members keep track of what they did with a 4-H record book and a Program Participation.

This page includes manuals and training materials that explain more about the different ways you can track your accomplishments and apply for awards. See the manual section below.

Youth have the opportunity to apply for many awards and educational travel experiences. The due date for these forms is the Tuesday after Labor Day each year. See below for the forms and applications.
