The Public Presentations Program is one of 4-H’s most beneficial and rewarding experiences. It is the one most often credited by 4-H alumni as having given them an edge above peers in both college and professional careers. It provides a unique opportunity to develop a positive self-concept and poise, gain self-confidence before a group, learn to express ideas clearly, respond spontaneously to questions, and gain subject matter knowledge. Through a progressive series of communication activities, youth learn to express themselves and their ideas.
Each county may select a maximum of twenty youth to participate in District Presentations. The same presentation evaluated at the county level must be done at the district level except impromptu participants who choose a new topic at the district event.
Presentations should be a minimum of five minutes and a maximum of 15 minutes with the exception of impromptu presentations which should be at least three minutes and no longer than eight minutes. The impromptu presenter must have completed at least three Public Presentations or reached 13 years of age as of January 1 of this year.
