Washoe 4-H Team 2021, 4-H Home Arts and Sciences Project Record Book (Washoe County), Extension, University of Nevada, Reno Forms

4-H'ers are encouraged to choose a project (or projects) that interest them.  These projects can be worked on individually, or with groups of youth that have similar interests.  While working on these projects, youth are encouraged to keep detailed records that can be submitted for awards such as 4-H record books or Congressional awards.  Parents and 4-H leaders are their to guide our youth as they expand their minds and strive to improve their club, community, country, and world.

While completing these non-formal, science-based, experiential education projects, 4-H'ers gain knowledge and enhance life skills enabling them to become positive, productive, capable and compassionate members of society.

Record keeping and completing a 4-H record book describing the work of a member's project is an important part of 4-H.  While not easy, the benefits of completing a record book are very tangible.  Youth will be prepared for future employment, college applications, and household management with the skills they gain from record keeping.  Youth are encouraged to complete record books at the conclusion of each year's project work.  Record books can be submitted to your local county extension office for judging.  Winning county-level books can be judged at the state level.
