4-H Record Books
All 4-H Members ages 8-18 are expected to complete a 4-H record book for each of their chosen projects. Record books are required for State Fair. All Summit County 4-H members are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the Middle Park Fair in August to qualify for State Fair. 4-H leaders will assist members in completing their record books.
Parental Involvement in Projects
The most successful 4-H members have the interest and support of their parents. Here are some tips and ideas for parental involvement in 4-H projects:
- Advise your child in selecting 4-H projects.
- Participate in project meetings. If your child is ages 5-7, talk with the 4-H leader regarding parent participation in projects.
- Show interest and enthusiasm for the projects.
- Help guide your child with the project, but don’t do it for him/her.
- See that when a project is started, it is completed satisfactorily.
- Stay informed via weekly 4-H emails and the Summit County 4-H website.
- Offer to assist the 4-H volunteer project leader, including meeting setup or cleanup.
- Help find a local leader for a project, or serve as a volunteer 4-H leader in an area that interests you.
