UConn 4-H Record Keeping

The UConn 4-H Record Keeping system was developed as an outcome of a survey taken among leaders, parents, 4-Hers and alumni.  The guidebook, project records, alternate records and activity record are the results of the efforts and hard work of the State 4-H Committee on Record Keeping.  This volunteer group met monthly for two years.  The Committee's goal for the new record keeping system includes:  being user friendly; provide a guidebook with examples for leaders, parents and members; have a record keeping system that mimics the real world; and use industry standards as a guide for deciding on the information needed for record keeping.

What is a record book?

4-H members are encouraged to keep records as part of their leadership experience.  Your 4-H records present a picture of your growth and development as a 4-H member.  A complete 4-H record book includes a:
  • UConn 4-H Record Book Cover
  • 4-H Activity Record for each year of experience
  • 4-H Project Record sheet for each individual project taken during that year
  • Appropriate 4-H project supplemental sheets for each individual project taken during that year

New Record Book Pages for 2019

UConn 4-H is piloting new record book pages to enhance the record keeping process.  For this 2019 4-H Fair either the old or new record book pages can be used.  The new record book pages to be used are:
