Boone County 4-H Resources

4-H Projects

This project is the opportunity for you to work on your record keeping skills as well as work on building a 4-H resume that will assist you when preparing 4-H scholarships and awards. 4-H parents who's children have done the Achievement Book as an activity in the past years say it is an asset to have and also a great book of 4-H memorabilia. 

The 4-H Achievement Book project is a way of creating an organized summary of your entire 4-H experience that contains a comprehensive report of your goals, plans and accomplishments. It is one way to make a formal review of your goals and achievements and is a helpful tool to plan your own growth for the future. Your achievement record and report will be a good keepsake for years after you've finished your 4-H career. The record you build opens doors to many awards and benefits such as medals
