Record Keeping & Project Report Forms

Record keeping and Project Reporting are valuable skills taught to members of the Kansas 4-H program. Members are encouraged to keep a permanent record of all 4-H and Non-4-H Experience and are encouraged to summarize their experiences on the Kansas 4-H Project Report Form for project recognition. 

To help you through this process, please refer to the "Guide to Kansas Project Recognition" below:
