Make Your Best Better with 4-H Record Keeping

Would you believe that creating a record of your 4-H work can be a valuable and easy way to bring you
more success with your 4-H projects, your school work, and even your future career? 

Record keeping is about thinking about what you want to do in 4-H this year, and write the reason down on this summary. As youselect projects and activities you would like to try, write down each one on the summary. Use your planning calendar to list all your project and event activities in one place. Be sure to list the steps needed to complete your projects. Do all your plans realistically fit within the time you have available?

Can you get everything done? If not, what can you rearrange?

More information about record keeping including helpful tools and records information can all be found here.  Record keeping is not a requirement for Minnesota 4-H'ers but we do encourage it!
