We recommend that you download and save these records to your computer to protect against losing your work.
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.
Junior General Project Report Ages 7-9
Intermediate General Project Report Ages 10-13
Senior General Project Report Ages 14-18
