Record Books

4-H Record Books are also called e-Records. They can be downloaded from the State 4-H Website. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. The links to e-Records in the specific project areas are below. Record books are turned in at Interview Judging before our County Fair. In June, you will need to schedule an interview for each of your project areas and bring your record book with you to Interview Judging the week of the Jeffco 4-H Fair.

2024 FR Regional Creative Cooks Contest – February 24th at 8:30am

  • Location: Adams County Regional Park, Dome Building (9755 Henderson Road, Brighton 80601)
    • Creative Cooks is an opportunity for members to showcase their creativity while learning more about meal planning, nutrition and food safety. In this contest, members choose a theme and develop a menu to accompany a meal (ex. a tea party, Broncos watch party, the opening course of a fancy dinner). Working either individually or on a team of 2, you’ll create a visually appealing table arrangement with one item from your menu for the judge to taste. Members will be judged based on county. This serves as the qualifying event for State Fair. Registration info to come.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
