RECORD BOOKS – (Word)
The Word files below are .doc files and can be opened and completed in Microsoft Word versions 2003 or 2007. Click on the link to the record book(s) you want to use. Save on your hard drive and or thumb drive. Rename if you want and remember where you saved it!
You may want to save an extra “blank copy” (give it a unique name). That way, if a “major glitch” happens to a section of your “working record book file” – you can copy and paste a “clean page” into your working document.
NOTE: These are old templates. The COVER of Record Books have a drop-down menu for the 4-H Year without an option for the current year. You can create your OWN cover sheet including the same information (remember for Fair Exhibits – you may want to leave the address blank). OR you can download the Level 1 or Level 2 COVER documents. Note the document is NOT a template – so be aware that ANY of the content can be edited or accidentally deleted!

Record Book Competition
Lincoln and Adams County 4-H’ers:
Good record keeping is a skill you will use your entire life. AND, believe it or not, it CAN be fun! One tip . . . don’t wait until you only have a few days left to finish (or start) your Record Book. This causes frustration! You will enjoy doing your Record Book so much more if you keep up on it. Really!!!
If you choose to enter your Record Book in competition, remember that judging is subjective . . . one judge may view certain areas of your book differently than another judge. Whether you use the WSU published Record Book form, self designed, or a computer produced Record Book, you should follow the guidelines included on the Li-Adams 4-H Record Book Evaluation Forms.

Lincoln-Adams Record Book SCORE GUIDES
In Lincoln and Adams counties, you may use any style record book you like to fulfill your 4-H record keeping obligation! You can use the computer or hand-write on pre-printed Record Book pages. You can even create your own or incorporate portions created with software such as Excel, Quick Books or others!! The point is to keep records that reflect what you plan, do, learn, spend, and earn!
However, each Fair or County may require specific reocord book formats or have unique judging criteria. If you want to place well in competition, it is up to YOU to find out ahead of time what the expectations are for a specific Record Book entry.
To place well in Lincoln County or Wheat Land Communities Fair competition, your record book can be any style or format, but should include the elements listed on the appropriate Record Book Evaluation form below. And the Sections should be tabbed as described in Assemble Your 4-H Record Book. (Level 1 has slightly different sections – follow the order on the Evaluation form)
