Youth Record Books
While the 4-H Record Book is not a required step to being a 4-H'er, your Record Book is a great way to keep track of what you do throughout the enrollment year. That information can be used for scholarship applications and for earning award levels within the 4-H program. It can also show you the progress you have made in your learning process. Learning to write thoughts, feelings, and activities down in an organized method is a great life skill.
The Record Book is utilized at both the club and project level, and is required for showing and/or selling an animal at the Placer County Fair and Gold Country Fair. Please talk with your Project and Club Leaders for further details.
