Record Book Forms
Each 4-Her is required to submit their Personal Page, Permanent Record, and write a 4-H story at the end of the 4-H year.
Additionally, 4-Hers can complete a Kansas Award Portfolio (KAP) for each of their 4-H projects and be eligible for achievement pins.These pins will be handed out at the annual Achievement Banquet that is held in November. 4-Hers will need to complete a KAP and submit them to their club for county KAP judging. 4-Hers 16 and older may qualify for area and state KAP judging thereafter. We highly encourage 4-Hers to complete the Kansas Award Portfolio.
Below is a link for all the forms in Microsoft Word, PDF, and RTF.
