Record books are how a 4-H'er tracks their year. It is very important to their 4-H experience in allowing time for the member to reflect on their project workshops and club activities. Record books teach kids how to set goals, tracks their community service (great for things like scholarship applications), and helps them learn the cost of their project.
Record books are due to club leaders by August 31. Electronic forms can be downloaded below or on the Montana 4-H website. Hard copies are available through your club leader or the Extension Office for a small cost. Members and leaders have the option of using apps like Zingbooks instead of paper.
