Why keep records and resumes?
Keeping records of your 4-H experiences is a way of reflecting on and enhancing learning. Reflection allows you to think about the how's and why's of an experience or activity to identify what you learned through the experience, enabling you to then apply that learning in other situations.
4-H record keeping is helpful in teaching important life skills, such as self-discipline, decision making, goal setting, wise use of resources, communication and sharing. Accurate and up-to-date records not only provide a history of your 4-H experience, they are also helpful in successfully completing applications to colleges and universities, scholarships and employment.
Resumes and project records are due to the Extension Office by October 1 of each year.
