"To Make the Best Better"
Welcome to the Monterey County 4-H Program, we have approximately 800 youth enrolled in local 4-H programs and nearly 300 adult volunteers engaging youth in varied learning experiences. There are seventeen clubs in the county, covering almost all geographic areas. Our mission is to engage youth in reaching their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development.
The Leaders Council’s Incentives and Recognition Committee held a series of 4-H “Record Book Roundup” review sessions during the Fall and Winter of 2014 and Spring of 2015.
The goals of these sessions were to update, revise and modify the county’s Record Book competition and bring each Club into alignment for assembling, teaching and judging 4-H Record Book books as part of the educational value of the 4-H program.
There was a review of the process, criteria and scoring of record books for Club and County competitions. A concept to keep the “best Project book” awards and to add a traditional record book judging (such as done at Club and State) could have been added. (However, it was not voted in)
These meetings also included discussion on defining criteria for the Council to adopt that is fair and equitable to all Clubs as members apply for their Star Ranking awards through the County offices.
Please review the Record Book tabs on this website carefully as there have been a number of additions and clarifications your family will find useful. For those who wish to enter their record Book into the Monterey County Record Book competition, note the due date to enter is August 10th.
