    4-H Portfolios

    NEW PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES

    The State 4-H Office introduced new portfolio guidelines for the upcoming 2019-2020 4-H year.  Weber County Portfolios will be comprised of a cover letter, resume, and project report form instead of the traditional binder with various sections and forms.  We are confident this will be a welcome change.  As a result we have decided to allow the submission of the new portfolio format for current 4-H year projects. To learn more about the new portfolio format, please visit the Utah 4-H Portfolio Page.

    For the October 1, 2019 deadline, members will have the option to submit the traditional binder with forms or submit the new portfolio format.

     

    TRADITIONAL PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES

    A 4-H portfolio is an organized summary of a member's complete experience in the 4-H program. It 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.

     

    Due Dates

    Portfolios for all project areas are due for county competition by October 1 each year. Youth in 9th-12th grades will turn in their "up to date" portfolio by February 1 for state competition.

     

    Basic Guidelines

    Members must use standardized portfolio forms; no other items should be included. A portfolio is not a scrapbook.

    Documents should be placed in a 1" clear view, white, 3-ringed binder.

    Each section should be divided with a Kelly green 4-H divider sheet.

    Members may print their own or purchase pre-printed divider pages from the 4-H office. One set is $2.

    Templates for Section 1 Project Reports

    In Section 1, members may create the table of their choice that best summarizes the size and scope of their 4-H project. Or, 4-H members are able to view templates for various projects on the State 4-H website (Word or PDF).
