The 4-H Presentations program is an opportunity for youth to learn about a new topic, develop a presentation, and utilize public speaking skills at the District Activity Day competition.

For this contest, youth ages 8-18, research, write, practice, and deliver a 5-12 minute presentation on a topic of their choice. Youth ages 5-7 can also participate by presenting a 2-4 minute presentation on a subject of their choice. The Dare County 4-H Extension Agent is available to assist youth with presentation preparation such as topic selection, outline, and organization.

Confident public speaking is a crucial but often overlooked and underdeveloped skill. Developing effective communication skills and techniques provide youth with a positive sense of self and higher levels of self-confidence. This will empower them to achieve and succeed in any situation they encounter. Additionally, presentations are fun! Presentations allow 4-Hers to explore an area that interests them. There are also cash prize opportunities for those who win!
