What you did . . . What you learned . . . When you did it!
The 4-H program has a long history of record keeping. The focus reflects the importance
of this life skill in our daily lives. In 4-H, young people have tracked their activities,
events, profits and losses, skill development and learning experiences, and much more
using the iconic 4-H Record Book. In addition to record keeping, the 4-H Record Book gives members an opportunity to
reflect on their year, measure their achievements and growth, and set goals, and develop
plans to meet those goals.
