4-H Project Records

Participating in 4-H Record Keeping allows 4-H Members to set goals for the year, track progress, and evaluate their work.  While the Crow Wing County 4-H Program does not require completion of records to participate in 4-H, members should be encouraged and instructed in the process.  Clubs are encouraged to form their own guidelines concerning records. 

4-H members must turn in project records to be eligible for the Record Keeping Award, Project Awards and certain Special Achievement Awards, which are offered at county level. Accurate, complete record documentation is an important life skill taught through the use of 4-H records. The ability to set goals, make plans and evaluate progress will benefit 4-H members in their future.

To learn more about 4-H Project Record Keeping, including guidelines and tips for completing forms, please see the 4-H Record Keeping Handbook.

The handbook, along with project record forms, can be accessed via the downloads section below.
