4-H Presents!

4-H teaches life skills through experiential learning.  Public Speaking represents one of the core life skills emphasized in 4-H curriculum.

4-H members develop public speaking skills through participation in their 4-H Clubs and their 4-H Projects.  Each club promotes public speaking by involving members in group discussions, presentations, and demonstrations.  4-H Members gain confidence in their public speaking skills by speaking in a non-threatening environment with friends, parents, and Club Leaders. Each 4-H Project requires members to share the information they learn through demonstrations and speeches.

Frederick County 4-H provides further experiential learning through a Public Speaking Workshop held prior to 4-H Presents.  The workshop allows members to learn from experts, leaders, and older members.  Members ask questions and receive tips without the pressure of a competition.
