(Please note that dates are subject to change, so check often.)
The following e-Records are due into the Extension Office before 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 12, 2022:
Dog Project -- all e-records
Horse Project -- all e-records
Consumer Science/General Projects -- if you received a red ribbon or higher at the Pueblo County Fair, you do not need to turn in your e-record. If you received a white ribbon, participation ribbon, or if you did not exhibit at the Pueblo County Fair, you'll need to turn in your e-record.
Livestock e-records -- Livestock leaders grade e-records and need to send in their scores by September 23, and bring in their nominations for best e-record. So, talk to your livestock leader and ask them when they need your e-record so they can grade it and get us the scores by September 23.
Shooting Sports -- all e-records, even if you exhibited a project board or stand-alone at the Pueblo County Fair. While you might have multiple e-records for your shooting sports exhibits, you will turn in only ONE shooting sports e-record to be graded. If you have more than one shooting sports e-record, combine the information into one shooting sports e-record for all of your disciplines. On the front cover of the shooting sports e-record, you will indicate your primary discipline in the “Unit Number and/or Title” section, but then you will also indicate any other disciplines you participated in during the 4-H year.
While you will need to include information on all of your disciplines, the Shooting Sports council will pay particular attention to the discipline you list on the top left corner under “Unit”. So, for example, this member would include inventory, pictures, logs, stories (and so forth) for both shotgun and air rifle, she would also make sure that the picture section contains at least 4 photos from the Shotgun discipline.
If you have questions about any shooting sports e-records, please speak to the Superintendent for your discipline, or talk to one of your shooting sports leaders.
Completing the e-record is 1/3 of the requirement to complete the project. Members must complete their projects if they wish to take them the following year.
Project Completion Requirements are as follows (Please see the Pueblo County 4-H Policies):
1. Participate in a 4-H related (subject matter or audience) demonstration or other speech-arts presentation.
2. Participate in a 4-H sponsored community service activity
3. Complete a record book for each project the member is enrolled in with a score of 70% or above
