Carteret County Youth participate in 2023 District and State Presentations

4-H Presentations are a huge part of North Carolina 4-H. It is one of the most successful ways to help a young person learn how to do a public speech. It focuses on members teaching others what they know about a particular project/subject matter. They are sometimes called demonstrations or illustrated talk or a formal speech. (4-H Awards Incentives Programs – Presentations)

“The 4-H Presentation Public Speaking Program serves as a platform for our 4-H’ers to showcase their expertise, engage with their peers, and learn the art of effective communication. The program not only challenges their intellect but also fosters personal growth, critical thinking, and leadership qualities. From passionate speeches on environmental sustainability to informative demonstrations on technology advancements, each presentation demonstrated the depth of knowledge and enthusiasm these young individuals possess. Their ability to connect with the audience and articulate their ideas with clarity left an indelible mark on all those present.”  –4-H Youth Shine Bright in the District 4-H Presentation Competitions
