4-Her wearing an apron with the 4-H emblem on itThis record is appropriate to use with 4-H members that have not previously completed a project record and are at least 9 years old. This record is meant as an entry into project records, regardless of age; this is a good introduction to the process without being overwhelming.

If you are unsure which record would be best for you or your 4-H-er, contact your local UMaine Extension 4-H County Office.
