Outstanding Record Book Competition

Club Level

  • Clubs set a due date for Record Books in their club (typically in September)
  • Clubs leaders (organizational, project, activity, etc.) read books, write comments, and select CLUB OUTSTANDING books.
    • Club leaders may read their own books or exchange with another club.
    • Readers should provide written comments to the youth on the inside cover of the book or on a comment sheet (if provided by the club).
    • Each club may choose to rank their 4-H members books in accordance with their club’s expectations (with the County Guidelines as a reference). Top books from each club will go on for county recognition.
