S. Schaffer 2021, Annual Achievement Record - Nevada 4-H Program, Extension, University of Nevada, Reno, 4-H - Forms

Purpose

4-H end-of-year documentation serves a variety of purposes in the 4-H youth development program.Record keeping, a valuable life skill, allows Members to document completed work as well as identify project and Club activities, achievements and knowledge gained. Through consistent and conscientious completion of these documents, Members chart their personal growth and measure achievement throughout their 4-H careers.

Record keeping teaches/develops these additional life skills and valuable habits:

  • Maintaining consistent records of attendance, achievement and experiences
  • Improved communication
  • Self reflection/evaluation
  • Learning time management and organizational skills
  • Learning responsibility and goal-setting skills
  • Using records to build a history of participation and achievement for scholarship applications, job applications and to identify areas of personal growth

The Nevada 4-H Program Annual Achievement Record is meant to accompany and serve as the basis for completion of the Nevada 4-H Star Rank Program Application. Individual 4-H County Programs may require additional materials from 4-H Members for completion of a 4-H Year. (Exs. “Portfolios,” “Record Books,” etc.). Members should contact their local 4-H Office to learn what is required to complete a 4-H Year and receive full recognition for that year’s activities.
