Ferry County 4-H Record Books
Stop by the 4-H office to pick up your free copy of the Ferry County 4-H Record Book.
Record Books are not a Ferry County 4-H requirement however it may be a club requirement. All 4-H members are strongly encouraged to keep a record book. Save your book for future reference when you are in high school and need scholarship(s) or job reference materials. Or use it to look back on fond memories of your 4-H years! We recommend getting a 3-ring binder and dividing each section of your book.
Remember, it is OK to leave some spaces blank. Not every member does everything. It is important to be accurate, clear and complete on the project records you do have.
The Ferry County record book is fillable online including the extra project sheets. Although a typed record book is always neat, don’t forget to include the personal touch with coloring and handwritten notes. Also, the work must be done by the 4-H’er!

4-H Educational Posters
Once again, this is not a Ferry County 4-H requirement, but most clubs require their members to complete one educational poster per 4-H project.
A good educational poster should be a simple design, easy to read from a distance, show creativity and most importantly convey educational value. Interactive posters are encouraged! The 4-H office does not laminate posters for the Ferry County Fair. If your blue ribbon poster is state fair bound, 4-H members can call the office to schedule a time if you would like your poster laminated.
