4-H News (12/07/2005)
Carolyn Dingfelder

4-H Program Coordinator

Winona County

Record Keeping - this is an integral part of 4-H Youth Development. Record keeping is one of the many life skills needed throughout life and one that is taught in the 4-H Program through the four-fold development of Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. Through the development of "Head" the life skills of Managing; which includes resiliency, keeping records, wise use of resources, planning and organizing, and goal settings; and Thinking which includes service learning, critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, and learning to learn are targeted.

The 4-H records have three functions: planning - what one wants to learn or do in a project; reporting - what one accomplished; and evaluating - how well one did. These records that our 4-H'ers keep are a teaching and learning tool to be used throughout the 4-H year by which a 4-H'er is not just doing an activity but also learning by doing it, sharing it, understanding it, relating it and using it. Record keeping also encourages reflection, the understanding and relating of the project so that the 4-H'er may apply their learning to other situations and to future planning. Through record keeping our youth have the ability to see to what degree they have participated and grown in 4-H activities and how they have improved in their project work. Also, they see how they have helped to improve their communities for others. Records most importantly help 4-H members establish goals, assume responsibility, collect data and evaluate their progress.

Winona County 4-H Program recently recognized our county 4-H'ers who submitted their records for evaluation at both the club and county level. Clubs were recognized for their overall commitment and accomplishment, state fair participants and judging teams were also recognized along with our 4-H'ers graduating from their career within the 4-H Program. Following are the results:
