4-H Portfolios will be given to 4-H members at the January club meetings. The portfolios are a record of your 4-H participation this year. Portfolios should be turned in if you want to attend Achievement Day. You can also print a portfolio for each grade level at the link below.
Record keeping is an important part of 4-H because it provides a record of participation and your accomplishments. Writing things down helps us remember what’s happening and what we need to do. 4-H portfolios are an important way to keep track of our 4-H experiences. Everyone feels good when portfolios are worked on throughout the year and completed by the deadline. It will be more fun and less frustrating if you spend some time each month on your portfolio. Records are a part of life. Pictures are fun records of what you’ve done. You’ll enjoy your pictures much more if they are organized in a way that you can find them easily. Doing a 4-H portfolio is a part of 4-H life that helps in many ways.
Your portfolio should be turned in to your school 4-H Club Leader by the due date she or he sets. All portfolios are due to the 4-H Office in Breaux Bridge by Friday, February 27, 2015. Keep in mind that books received after this date will NOT be judged and CANNOT win Outstanding Record Book Awards. Please note that we are asking that members turn in only the 4-H Portfolio again this year, not the project books. Members will be asked to turn in a record sheet as part of their portfolio to show us what they did in their project book this year.
