It is time to prepare
for Public Presentation Day!
Public Presentation Day is a nationally recognized
element of the Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program. This public speaking event is one of 4-H's
most beneficial and rewarding experiences. It is the program most often credited by 4-H alumni as having given them an edge
above their peers in high school, college, and into their adult careers.
All 4-H’ers, from Cloverbuds to 4-H teens, have the chance to stand up
and clearly and confidently present a topic of their choice. It can be a specific project or recipe, a
skill they have mastered, or a topic they are passionate about.
