Record Book Information & Forms

Record Book Tips

  • Record Books (especially goal setting) should be started in the fall once you’ve enrolled in your projects for the year. The record book helps you set goals for the upcoming year and track your progress.
  • Record Books should be completed after the completion of your projects for the year…typically in August. Record Books are due in September – contact your club leader for the specific due date for your club.


Here are the guidelines on how to put together your record book.


Traditional Record Book Forms:

Cover & Main Pages

The documents below include front and back cover, as well as the “main pages” that include table of contents, goals, 4-H story, and comments pages. (Please note that there are blank pages in these documents to allow for printing pages back-to-back).

Find your project forms below for your 4-H Record Book.

  • It is not necessary to fill out a project page for each of your projects. We suggest picking your top 5 projects to focus on when completing your record book.
  • If you did not find your project listed here, please use the “Self-Determined” record page (for as many projects as needed).
  • Choose your file(s) and save to your computer before you start filling them out.  Please contact our office if you see an issue with the forms.
