Project Record

4-H Clover

Record keeping and Project Reporting are valuable skills taught to members of the Kansas 4-H program. Members are encouraged to keep a permanent record of all 4-H and Non-4-H Experience and are encouraged to summarize their experiences on the Kansas 4-H Project Report Form for project recognition. 

To help you through this process, please refer to the Guide to Kansas 4-H Project Recognition and MED 4-H Record Book Tips.

Permanent Record Example

Record sheets are offered in two record types, a general record for all non-animal projects and one for the projects with animals.  You still need to complete one record sheet for each project area enrolled in.  (Ex: one general record for photography, one general record for visual arts & crafts, one general record for foods, and one animal record for bucket calf.)   You still must complete a personal page and the permanent record each year in addition to the project record sheets.
