Non-Competitive Record Books

Non-Competitive record books encourage 4-Hers to keep track of the projects they are involved in with less detail than the competitive record books.  Non-competitive record books are recognized on a county level only.

Kansas Award Portfolio

The Kansas Award Portfolio (KAP) is a statewide competition amongst 4-Hers of all age categories. The record books are detailed and held to a higher standard than the non-competitive books. KAPs are judges first on a regional basis than on a state basis.
