Jackson Extension Office
Record Books are due to the Extension Office by September 1st every year.
**Please note the following: your 4-H club/4-H Leader may set an earlier deadline for when they would like them collected. Also, if the 1st falls on a weekend/holiday, the Record Books are due to the office by the end of the next business day.**
Record Books serve as a way to track what a youth has participated in over the course of the 4-H year! Record Books are a great way to help youth learn in the following ways: To establish good habits of organizing and planning, To improve written communication skills, To establish positive direction and identification of goals, Evaluation of economic worth of project(s) or activities, and Evaluation & motivation by self and others. Record books can also be a VERY helpful tool when older youth begin to create resumes!
