4-H Project and Cumulative Record Books
4-H Record Books are a way for 4-H’ers to plan and record their 4-H year. Record Books are also a competition for 4-H members at the county, district, and state levels. Youth ages 5 through 18 should complete a Record Book each year, although Cloverbud Books (ages 5–8) are neither judged nor critiqued, but receive feedback from reviewers to help the 4-H’er improve their work in future projects.  

Special note for Wake County 4-H Horse Youth: 

Effective for the 2017 show season, 4-H Project Record Book and Horse Supplement are both required in order to receive a 4-H Eligibility Card, which is required for participation in 4-H Horse Shows and other horse program activities. Youth do not have to do a Record Book during their first year in 4-H. Due to changes in the NC 4-H Horse Program in 2015/2016, no 2015 Record Book is required in order to compete in the 2016 Horse Shows.   
Age and Project and Cumulative Record Book Completion
In 4-H, age is determined by the age the youth member was on January 1 of the program year. For 2016 Record Books (which are due in January 2017), the 4-H'erwould do a Record Book based on how old s/he was on January 1, 2016.
