Record keeping is an important life skill for youth to attain. Many Ascension 4-H’ers are working hard to create, maintain and update their records through writing and pictures, which helps 4-Hers to track their activities and experiences, set and achieve personal goals and aids in building resumes and scholarship applications.

This school year, over 130 4-H’ers mastered their 4-H project area by setting and completing personal and project goals, completing their 4-H project’s outlined tasks, recording their efforts and achievements, both in and out of 4-H, and submitting their completed 4-H portfolios and project books for the Ascension 4-H parish record book competition. Of those participating, 26 youth earned blue ribbon awards, with 10 record books being sent on to compete in the State 4-H Record Book competition.

The 4-H’ers earning a blue ribbon in the Ascension Parish 4-H Record Book Competition were Katelyn Frank, Stacey Kloosterman, Seth Amedee, Kylie Cliburn, Ben Clingfost, Jenna Einsel, Hannah Godchaux, Alyssa Hymel, Ava Klieferle, Abby Lobell, Karlie Lobell, Walker Morrill, Avery Robinson, Ava Surla, Hannah Woodring, Case Bastin, Bryce Binning, Brodie Bourgeois, Shawn Comminey, Grace Ostermiller, Anthony Comeaux, Anna Frazier, Brady Houston, Allie Cliburn and Kinslei Scroggs.
