Career Portfolio

The Career Portfolio is a record that summarizes the 4-H'er's entire career.  The green cardboard covers and tab dividers are available for purchase in the Exention Office.  For county level judging, the Career Portfolio must include Project Record Books for each project completed.  The portfolios are judged in September and are used to determine eligibility for awards at the county level.  They are also necessary for 4-H Ambassador applications.  Portfolios that win at the county level will be sent on to the state level.  Winning books at the state level can then compete for National 4-H Youth Congress and 4-H National Convention.
