Have you ever thought about doing a recordbook? A recordbook is good for those who want to keep  records of their 4-H career, win awards for resumes, or help you with filling out your scholarship applications. All seniors who complete a recordbook say that it helped them with filling out their scholarship applications a lot.

Recordbook Changes

“For the Record” is the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program’s record keeping program. It is a two part educational process that teaches basic record keeping skills and then allows a 4-H member to participate in the record book competition.
