    Earn an award - complete your records!

    What are 4-H records? They are a short form for you 4-H'er to complete that will help them reflect on their 4-H year in club participation (participation record), and the projects that they completed over the year (project records). Everyone - including Cloverbuds! - can fill out records. Project records are due Monday, October 1 at Leader's Council meeting or before. Each youth will get one record form mailed to them to get them started! Additional record forms and some GREAT information about record keeping for both youth and their parents can be found here:

    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H

    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H may look a little different this summer. Due to overcrowding in the barns, and overall risk management practices, livestock quotas across the state have been reduced. There is no longer an additional trip for 90% showmanship. However, there are opportunities to win extra trips in each species for 2019! Check out this article to see our livestock quotas, and learn more about earning additional trips for next year.
