Why have 4-H Record Books?

4-H Record Books serve a variety of purposes in the Montana 4-H Program.

**4-H Record Books give members an opportunity to Reflect on their yearly work. Members document their skill development and their learning experiences in a written report. 4-H members measure their achievements and growth in their total years in 4-H.


**4-H Record Books encourage members to set goals, pursue strategies to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles.


**Completing a 4-H Record Book is a process where 4-H members record project and club work. Records management is a competency skill to identify, create, classify, archive, and preserve records. The 4-H Record Book teaches 4-H members these skills through a standard format.

Make Record Books Valuable

  1. Use Record Books OFTEN as a tool for sharing and reflection!
  2. Set goals early, and set aside time at the end of the year to reflect on those goals. Focus on the reflection, not “success”.
  3. Educate on the difference between “What I Did,” and “What I Learned.” What I Did - Literally, what you did. What I Learned - The reflection portion. What did I actually learn from this experience??
  4. Make this a priority.
