e-Record Keeping System
Colorado Clover Guide » e-Record Keeping System
Following in an overview of the system and information about completing 4-H e-records. A 4-H member who has participated in any project may also submit an e-record for judging.
The purpose of 4-H record keeping is to teach an important life skill. 4-H is not just doing, but learning by doing it, sharing it, understanding it, relating it, and using it.
Record keeping encourages reflection (understanding, relating) so that 4-H members can apply their learning to other situations. Record keeping is an integral part of the educational phases of 4-H.
The following objectives will be used for e-records. These objectives will be revised annually to address issues affecting youth development. The objectives are to be used in setting goals for project experiences, leadership, community service and awards. They will be reflected throughout a 4-H member's RecordBook.
- Attain a broad knowledge of 4-H projects and activities through keeping records.
- Acquire life skills essential for becoming an active, skilled, productive and responsible citizen.
- Adopt and apply the latest practices and research findings to everyday living.
- Use all 4-H training and experiences in choosing and preparing for a job.
- Develop leadership skills that promote positive youth development.
Refer to the current year's Colorado 4-H User Guide for Livestock/Horse e-Records and General and Consumer/Family e-Records. This User Guide and the e-Records themselves are available by visiting: http://www.colorado4h.org/project_resources/erecords/index.php
