4-H Project Record Winners Announced

Posted on 5/23/2013 by April Bowman

4-H Project Record Winners Announced

In January, Forsyth County 4-H members turned in records of their 4-H project work for the year to be evaluated. Those youth earning Grand or Reserve Champion advanced to the District competition. The books begin when the young people set their goals of things that they want to learn AND do in their projects for the year in January. They add their accomplishments, a story and a scrapbook to the book and turn it in for the judges to evaluate. Those youth ages 11-18 also add Citizenship, Leadership and Community Service activities to the books. Project books do not advance to state competition.

Youth ages 13-18 are allowed to compile three years worth of work in one project area into a cumulative record form to be evaluated. These books also advance to district competition and the winner from each of the five Cooperative Extension districts advance to state competition. Click here to view the results. It is obvious that Forsyth County submitted excellent work!

If you would like for a young person ages 5-18 to learn record keeping, goal setting as well as planning/ organization, please contact the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center at 703- 2850 or by email at 4H@forsyth.cc.
