Each 4-H member who enrolls in one of our community or school clubs, must enroll in and work in a project each year. At the end of the year, a Project Book can be combined with supporting materials and turned in as a Project Record. Below, you will find all of the information necessary to complete a Project Book and Project Record Book. Please read our Fact Sheet for complete information.
If you are unsure if an older version of 4-H curriculum is a complete Project Book or an activity only, please contact us at the office. We're happy to answer all of your project-related questions!
Please review this Action Plan (PDF) and Project Fact Sheet (PDF) before proceeding.
General Project Record Books
To receive recognition for project competition, each 4-H participant must submit at least one General Project Record Book by July 1.
Please choose a project summary or report based on age level as of Sept. 1 of the current 4-H year:
Then include one Evaluation (PDF) and age-level project report score sheet or summary review sheet (below) with each completed Project Record Book. PROJECT RECORD BOOKS WITHOUT EVALUATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED (unless member opted out of evaluations at the beginning of the year).
Achievement Record Books
