4-H Presentation Contest
The 4-H Public Presentation program is frequently referred to as "the most beneficial and rewarding experience of all 4-H experiences." Public Presentations give 4-H members an excellent opportunity to research a subject, organize ideas in logical order, develop visual aids and learn to speak effectively before groups. With each public presentation, there is an increase in self confidence, poise, self esteem, stage presence and knowledge. Public presentations can teach a 4-H'er lifetime skills that will be useful in his or her future social, educational and career pursuits. It is important for 4-H'ers to begin doing Public Presentations at an early age and continue throughout their 4-H career. Public speaking skills develop over time, with experience and repetition. Contest is open to all 4-H'ers ages 8–18 (by January 1 of the current year)—need not be enrolled in a specific project. The contest will be held on Wednesday, June 18 begining at 10 a.m. at the Kimball-Banner County 4-H Building. See the 4-H Presentations Contest - Procedures and Guidelines flyer for more information.
