Since the early 1900's, 4-H Record Books have been judged annually. Initially, competitions focused on project skill development, primarily in agricultural areas.
Now, 4-H Record Book competitions evaluate members' leadership, development, citizenship activities and personal growth as well as project proficiency. 4-H Record Books may be judged at the parish and state levels.
The purpose of Record Book competitions are to:
- Provide an incentive to members to record their project work and personal achievement in their 4-H Record Book.
- Provide 4-H members with feedback and encouragement about their 4-H project skill development, leadership and citizenship development and record-keeping skills.
- Recognize members for outstanding 4-H work.
