The purpose of keeping records is to establish good habits of setting goals, planning, organizing, evaluating, and improving written communication skills. In 4-H, the records are kept in an individual record book, which is completed by every 4-H member. Those record books that do well at the club and county level judging are highlighted at the County Achievement Program.
