4-H Member Portfolio and Record Books

Madison County requires a 4-H Member Portfolio. It should include the member’s involvement report, 4-H Story, Project Record Books and other important information about the member’s 4-H experience.

Portfolio Organization and Judging Criteria

Portfolios are judged at the club level. Some portfolios will move on to the county level to be displayed at the fair and earn premiums.

Project Record Books

Learning to keep accurate records is an essential life skill. 4-H youth develop this skill by completing a simple record book for each project they enroll in. Idaho 4-H uses two basic record books, the 4-H Project Record Book and 4-H Animal Project Record Book.

Members should check with the UI Extension, Madison County office to make sure they are using the correct record book for their project(s). A new record book is used for each year.

Involvement Reports

Each member also maintains a 4-H Involvement Report that tracks overall club participation, leadership, civic engagement, 4-H promotional efforts and attendance at contests, activities and events.

This form is designed so members can keep a cumulative summary in one record. This is very helpful when members apply for awards and college scholarships.

The involvement report must be included in the 4-H Member Portfolio.

Completing Record Books

A completed record book must be submitted for each project a member enrolls in. We developed the following resources to clarify what information is needed in each section.

Completed record books should be included in the 4-H Member Portfolio.
