New Registration Information for State Event
Each district may select up to eleven (11) senior presenters for the State Event. A senior 4-H’er is at least 13 years old by January 1 of current year and no older than 19. Because this is the highest level of participation in the Public Presentation Program, presenters should be selected who have excelled at other levels and are ready for a higher standard of evaluation. All presenters selected must participate at the District level event. The breakdown of presentation slots is:

    • 6 from the categories of Demonstration and Illustrated Talk
    • 4 from the categories of Creative Communications (Dramatic Interpretation, Recitation, Speech)
    • 1 from the category of Interview

Research and Evaluation
  • Public Speaking and 4-H: This research review was conducted to inform the research question: Do public speaking programs support academic or workforce readiness for 4-H youth participants?
