PUBLIC PRESENTATIONS ARE ON!

May 18 - June 18

Do you FaceTime? Do you Zoom? Do you YouTube?

We would like to encourage our 4-H'ers to continue their journey to becoming confident speakers and effective interviewees. Though we cannot meet face to face we can embrace the idea of online connections.

Covid 19 cannot stop us! Please contact Cathy Sweet via email cjs58@cornell.edu with any questions or concerns and we can schedule your preferred avenue for presenting.

We are here for you. Stay safe. Find calm. Be happy.

4-H Public Presentations is a program in which youth learn to create a presentation and develop the skills needed to present it before an audience. They learn about the research process and the steps needed to organize information into an interesting and creative presentation.

Youth learn about the varied purposes of presentations and how to tailor their presentations appropriately to fit their intentions. Beginners are encouraged to select simple topics with which they are extremely comfortable, so that the presentation process is the focus of their learning without the stress of learning about an unfamiliar topic.

As youth progress and grow each year, they are challenged to try one of the more difficult types of presentations, to use more advanced technology in their presentations where appropriate, and to venture into unfamiliar topics or presentation styles.
