Record Book Tips – Part 4?

I forgot to put some record book tips in the last couple newsletters but I am starting it up again with Fair time right around the corner!

Here’s your tips for June!

  • Write neatly so books are easy to read! If you don’t have the best handwriting, use a computer to type up your records
  • Write in complete sentences and be specific
  • Include fun photos and newspaper clippings but remember its not a scrapbook
  • Check out your friend’s and older member’s record books! If you are still in your first couple years of 4-H and don’t know what to do, ask questions and compare books
  • If you have multiple years in one book, put the current year first and be sure to use set dividers to not confuse yourself and interview judges
  • Now is a great time to check back on your goals that you wrote earlier. See if there’s anything new you can start working on or check off goals that you have accomplished!
  • Start working on the financial part of your project book. If you have livestock animals, start writing down feed costs, vaccine costs, etc. If you have an indoor project, be sure to write down how much you have spent on equipment, products, etc.
