Record books involve keeping track of all of the activities, community service, awards, and any other things related to a 4-H’er’s major project.
Record books allow students to learn responsibility, creative writing and effective record keeping that will benefit them later in life, and parents appreciate the collection of records when it’s time for their seniors to apply for scholarships.
Wise County seniors brought home $72,000 in scholarships this year, and that wouldn’t have been possible without all they learned through keeping record books.
