4-H Record Sheets - NEW!!

Below are the newly updated and hopefully easier to use DeKalb County 4-H Record Sheets. I worked with a committee of leaders and we developed these easier to use record sheets to record your project goals, 4-H activities, community service, school/sport/community events, project work and a place to share how things went this year in 4-H. At the end of the 4-H year, these record sheets will determine all county awards along with some state awards.

We expect EVERYONE ages 8-18 years old to fill-out these record sheets every year. As you grow-up these sheets are a valuable tool for you to look back on everything you did not only in 4-H but also outside of 4-H. If you keep accurate records now you will be able to list all the community service activities, leadership roles and programs you were involved in when requested on the various award, college, scholarship and job applications you will fill out in the future.

One of the things we changed this year are the forms no longer have to be handwritten. As you can see there is a fillable .pdf file and a Word file located below. You will be able to type in either of these files and then save it to your computer and add to it as the year goes along. Feel free to add more lines if you need to. If you would prefer to handwrite them that is also acceptable. These record sheets are your own personal work. Handwriting or typing should be your own not your parents.

 At the end of the year please turn your records sheets into your leader and they will review, sign and date them. We only need the current year’s record sheets but it is a good idea to keep all of your record sheets in a 4-H folder, which we can provide, or a binder. The records will then be judged for awards that will be handed-out at the 4-H Recognition Night in November.

The committee hopes that these record sheets are self-explanatory and easy to understand. Since this is the first year using these, I would like to know if you have any suggestions on how to improve them for next year. I am excited to have these new and improved record sheets and I hope you find them much less complicated than the old sheets. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to give me a call or email at groezing@illinois.edu.
