Record Books

Record Books are a great way to keep track of the activities you participated in and watch your growth in 4-H. Completing a record bRB-Logo1ook is also a requirement for running for the higher officer positions. However, the categorization and rules are not always easy to understand. Below are links that I hope will help you successfully complete a record book.

General Tips:
  • If possible, do record events (and especially project meetings) as then happen. If you don't have time or don't know how to do the official record book, just write down:
    • The date of the event
    • What you did / made
    • What you learned
  • If you have not been working on your record book and are trying to start now:
    • Find dates from the following sources:
    • More help may be found in these places:
    • See sample winning record books, or ask other members if you can what they have submitted in the past


Online Record Book:
Below are instructions on how to use the Online Record Book, an online resource to make completing the record book easier. The ORB is easier to use than the paper versions in many ways:
  • If you need to add/remove an event that you added earlier, the ORB will reformat it for you.
  • You can see what other members/leaders have added and "copy" over their events
  • It is easy to log in and quickly add an event before you forget it, and then edit it later if necessary
  • Everything will be typed and look neater, and you don't have to worry about running out of boxes

Please note that you do need to print out your record book to submit it.
