Record Books

Keeping accurate records is a vital life skill that is very important! 4-H Record Books are just as important!

Each year you should write down the fun and difficult times to paint a verbal picture of your 4-H year. "A 4-H record is what the 4-H'er wants or needs to tell someone else (that doesn't know them) what they have done as a result of being a 4-H member."

As you continue through your 4-H career, the 4-H information you record in a 4-H record book
will help you fill out applications for work, college or perhaps apply for a special trip or award where the application calls for the information from your 4-H Record Book.

4-H records show your growth throughout the years. It lists how you have helped others, what you have been able to teach and share, as well as what you have learned. It shows goals set and goals accomplished.

The Gilliam County 4-H Program has record book clinics available to 4-H members a couple times a year.

Take a look at the Record Book Guidelines for information on how to begin or update your record books. Most of the 4-H Record Book forms are being updated so you can fill them out and print them, but some you still have to handwrite. The below forms are needed for your record book.

Please note: All forms are in PDF format unless otherwise specified. You must download and save them to your computer before you are able to fill them out. Not all of them are in fillable PDFs, but most are. Please contact the office if you have any questions or experience problems. If you do not have the latest version of Adobe, you can download it for free here.
