State 4-H Presentation Day
Part of the State 4-H Field Day
A presentation is a method used to communicate an idea by showing and/or telling. It can be a demonstration or a talk that uses posters and other visual aids. A 4-H Presentation helps you learn to:
- Research a subject
- Organize ideas in a logical order
- Be a teacher and practice public speaking skills
Public speaking skills are ranked number one among the skill sets of professionals. Other guiding factors for developing public speaking skills include:
- Discovering an important component of leadership development
- Increasing self-esteem, self confidence, and ability to accept feedback
- Expanding skills for planning, preparation and performance
