Record Keeping With Zbooks

Record keeping and Project Reporting are valuable skills taught to members of the Kansas 4-H program. Members are encouraged to keep a permanent record of all 4-H and non-4-H experience and are encouraged to summarize their project experiences on the Kansas 4-H Project Report Form for project recognition.

To help you through this process, please refer to the Guide to Kansas 4-H Project Recognition.

Couple of items to make note of:

  • Youth may choose to use either record keeping option: a.) the fillable PDF Project report forms or b.) the online ZBooks software
  • The Permanent Record is included in ZBooks. If you choose to keep records with ZBooks, do not feel like you have to transfer over all of your previous years' activities into the online Permanent Record. Start with this year and attach it to your previous document.
