Awards and Record Books 

The Waukesha County 4-H Leaders' Association awards youth who invest themselves in the 4-H program through project work, club and county level leadership, and community service. These awards include various trips and college scholarships. A large component of the awards process is recording their efforts and contributions in a 4-H Record Book.

 
 

Record Books


 A 4-H Record Book is documentation of all of the 4-H activities at the club, county, and state level, that a youth has participated in. Many 4-H members will attest to the benefit and importance of Record Books and record keeping as they apply for higher education, prepare their resume, and submit applications for jobs.

A yearly 4-H Record Book is required in order for a 4-H member to qualify for County Level awards, pins, higher education scholarships, or scholarships for awarded trips. Record books are to be reviewed by a club leader and ultimately the Awards and Scholarship Committee prior to qualifing for county level awards, pins, scholarships, or awarded trips.

The deadline to turn in Record Books for 2021 is August 27.
