Area Presentation Days


All Area Presentations Days are moving to a virtual format.

Evaluators, please sign up here.

Presenters, register here.

Please complete this registration as early as possible, and select the earliest time slot that works for you. We are not setting a registration deadline yet because several counties have not completed their presentation days. (Even if you already signed up for an in-person presentation day that was canceled, please register again with the links above.)

We know that virtual contests do not solve the problem for every contest or every family. We also recognize that people have other serious priorities right now, and that 4-H participation may not be a priority at the moment. We also understand that not everyone has a home internet connection and may not be able to participate virtually. Furthermore, we did not want to postpone events into the new program/school year. Our goal is to do the best we can in maintaining some normalcy and continuing the learning experiences for as many our youth as possible, honoring the work they have put in over this program year to prepare their presentations. For those who cannot participate this way, we want to keep track and see what we can do. So even if a young person cannot participate virtually, we ask them to complete the registration form and note this in the comments box.

4-H members may present at a Presentation Day to receive feedback and an award.

  1. Each county organizes a County 4-H Presentation Day.

  2. If you receive a Gold award at the county level, you are encouraged to present in an Area 4-H Presentation Day. You may present at ANY Area 4-H Presentation Day (not just the one organized for your Area). You can also present at multiple Area 4-H Presentation Days if you would like to try to improve your score or get more practice.

  3. If you receive a Gold award at any Area Presentation Day, you may present at the State 4-H Presentation Day.

Primary members (ages 5-8) are encouraged to participate in Area Presentation Day as well, but can only receive participation seals and cannot be evaluated according to the Presentation Manual. 

Presentation Manual

The 4-H Presentation Manual - Revised October 2016 is the standard guide for all 4-H presentations. The included evaluation forms must be used at all 4-H Presentation Days.


The Area Presentation Days are coordinated by staff and volunteers, supported by the California 4-H Management Board
