4-H Records and Forms


All Records Due - October 9, 2017

Horse Records Due - July 5, 2017

The 4-H program has a long history of record keeping. Record books teach members valuable, lifelong skills in records, accounting, reporting, and written communication. In 4-H, youth have tracked their activities, events, profits and losses, skill development and learning experiences, within their record books.

4-H Record Books serve a variety of purposes:

  • They give members an opportunity to reflect on their yearly work where they can measure their achievements and growth in their 4-H career.
  • They encourage members to set goals, develop plans to meet those goals, and to shift gears in the face of challenges and obstacles.
  • They unlock eligibility for 4-H scholarships, travel opportunities, leadership positions, and awards at the county, state, and national levels.

Recordkeeping is an ongoing, educational and fundamental part of a member’s 4-H experience! We strive to make this a positive experience for all youth!

To help guide members Benton County 4-H hosts a record workshop annually with helpful tips for the novice and beginners as well as, updated information and reminders for the older experienced youth. Workshop registration opens in January with the event happening in February. 

For additonal help please review the Setting the Record Straight (Record Keeping Guidelines) created by Benton County 4-H.

County Medal - Member Award

A county medal recognizes a 4-H member’s growth in the work they have done in a particular project area. It looks at project skills learned, as well as community service, mentorship, and/or demonstrated leadership in which the member has participated. It recognizes the individual rather than the project. Members may only receive a specific county medal once per project in each age division (intermediate & senior), with the exception of members may receive a fashion revue or achievement medal in the same year they receive a project medal.
