Some 4-H clubs require members to keep Record Books, while some clubs do not. A yearly 4-H Record Book is required in order for a 4-H member to qualify for County Level awards, pins, scholarships, or award trips. 4-H Record Books should be filled out completely and accurately. Parents should oversee the member’s work, but the member must do his or her own writing or typing. Parents and project leaders should encourage each 4-H member to work on his or her Record Book throughout the year.

Scholarship Application Requirements
The Waukesha County 4-H Leaders’ Association Association has budgeted up to $10,000 for scholarships to be awarded to qualifying 4-H members. Applications are evaluated by a selection committee based on: 20% Scholastic Achievement, 40% 4-H Club Achievement, 20% 4-H County Achievement, 10% 4-H State & National Achievement, and 10% for Community and non 4-H Achievement. If you qualify, you will receive a scholarship award from $100 to a maximum of $1000. Actual amount is proportional to the evaluation results. Scholarship awards will be announced at the Senior Member Recognition Event. If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive an acknowledgement letter and form explaining additional requirements that must be met to receive the money. (See the sample letter and form for full details.)
