Project and Record Book Info

Overview of Record Book Options:

It is highly recommended that each 4-H member take the time to reflect on their learning in the projects they chose this year.

Our Experiential Learning Model is: Do. Reflect. Apply. We want youth to take the time to think about what skills they gained, as well as what goals they would like to set for the year to come. This year, you will have 3 options to choose from:

  1. Traditional Record Book:You may choose to do the record book as you have in years past, requiring the “Record Book Cover Page”, “Picture Page & Project History” sheet,  “Activity Record” and “Project Plan and Evaluation” Form for each project youth were enrolled in, as well as suggested project-specific pages listed per the links.  You may use the sheets from last year or this year. If you want to compete for a record book award, consider this method. Find all materials below.    Sample Record book (PDF)

 

  1. Basic Book: Complete the “Record Book Cover Page”, “Picture Page & Project History” sheet,  “Activity Record” and a “Project Plan and Evaluation” Form for each project youth were enrolled in.Youth do not need to add specific project sheets unless they want to. See it put together here:  Basic Record Book, full, (Word),     Basic Record Book, full 

 

  1. Resume & Debrief: Youth may choose to submit a 4-H resume and sign up for a short debriefing session (ten to fifteen minutes) with 4-H educator Megan (over the phone, in person, or through zoom).

Maybe you enroll in a project and there is not a project leader within the club you enrolled in. There are a variety of county-wide committees that have leaders around the county that can assist you.  Click on this listing to begin.  If you don’t see your project listed, feel free to contact our Extension office at 715-526-6136 and ask if we can refer you to a leader who may be able to answer your questions.
