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.
