Record Books are due at the beginning of every October. A Record Book gives 4-H'ers a chance to show and tell what they have learned and accomplished throughout the 4-H year. One Record Book should be completed for each project the member has signed up for.
A COMPLETE Record Book must be turned in to your Club Leader, along with the County Champion Application Form, and the appropriate Pin Application. Your Club Leader will review and give to the Extension Office for judging. Winners of this judging will be recognized at the annual Achievement Banquet. A complete Record Book consists of a Personal Page and the appropriate KAP Application.
The personal page will be the first page of your Project Book, and will be the same for each one you complete. It is best to use a presentation folder or binder with a clear cover. If this is not possible, please make sure your name, county, and the project area is on the cover of the book.
Kansas Award Portfolio (KAP) Applications:
4-Hers can apply to be a county project champion for one or more of the projects they are enrolled in.
