Record keeping is an important part of the 4-H experience. 4-H members are encouraged to keep records as part of their leadership experience. They present a picture of their growth and development as a 4-H member. With this in mind a new 4-H robotics record sheet has been created to help 4-H robotics members keep track of their activities, awards and goals. Record books come in handy as you begin to apply for awards such as National Honor Society and apply for college. We hope you will give them a try. Please note that in order to be considered for 4-H medals, awards, and national trips, you must complete the robotics record sheet and pair it with the yearly project record. If you have any questions, please contact your local 4-H educator.
