Club/County Record Book Competitions

Club Review

4-H Record Books are first reviewed at the local level by 4-H Community Club/Unit Leaders and Project Leaders. Club level evaluation is based on the Danish system where 4-H Record Books are judged against a standard.

Seals are awarded based on the member’s 4-H project work, personal growth and the book’s organization. Through their personal achievements and 4-H participation, members may earn Star Rank recognition.

Members please download 2016 -17 Record Book Cover Page and attach to your Record Book.

County Competition

Members may submit their 4-H Record Books for county competition. Books are evaluated on the member’s 4-H work, leadership and citizenship development, and personal growth. County level evaluation should be based on the Danish system with all books judged against a standard. Evaluators provide a critique and suggestions for future growth and involvement. Counties may designate awards for 4-H Record Books in specific project categories and age groups based on meeting published standards.
