A 4-H portfolio is an organized summary of a member's complete experience in the 4-H program. In includes records on each project, activities, leadership, and community service. The portfolio includes a story and photo section that helps showcase these experiences.
A portfolio is a very important part of 4-H involvement. Not only is it submitted annually and evaluated for county awards, but it is also a major tool utilized for 4-H scholarships and to select delegates for national trips.
Horse project members will also turn in their "up to date" portfolio at the night horse show to be eligible to represent Weber County 4-H in regional or state horse show competition.
Youth in 9th-12th grades will turn in their "up to date" portfolio by February 1 for state competition.
