The Connecticut 4-H Record Keeping system was developed as an outcome of a survey taken among leaders, parents, 4-Hers and alumni. The record keeping system mimics the real world, and uses industry standards as a guide for deciding on the information needed for record keeping.
4-H members are encouraged to keep records as part of their leadership experience. The 4-H records present a picture of growth and development as a 4-H member. A complete 4-H record book includes a:
- 4-H Activity Record for each year of experience
- 4-H Project Record sheet for each individual project taken during that year
- Financial Summary of the project; and
- Appropriate 4-H project supplemental sheets for each individual project taken during that year
