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.
