WHAT IS PRESENTATION DAY?
4-H presentations are a special sharing time when members show the skills they’ve acquired to others. Presentation Day gives 4-H members the opportunity to show others what they have learned in their current 4-H projects or what interests them! Each member presents in front of their peers and two to three evaluators. Each evaluator fills out an evaluation form using the Danish evaluation system. The scores are tallied and the presenter earns either a gold, silver, bronze, or red.

WHAT IS A PRESENTATION?
A presentation is a method used to communicate an idea or topic by showing, telling, or expressing your opinion. A presentation may be a demonstration, a talk, a speech, or a skit.

A 4-H Presentation helps you learn to:

  • Research a subject
  • Organize ideas in a logical order
  • Share your spark or your passion
  • Practice public speaking skills

WHY GIVE A PRESENTATION?
Presentations help 4-H members:

  • do and learn-learn by doing
  • develop an ability to speak before a group
  • share acquired knowledge and skill
  • develop creativity
  • gain experience in teamwork
  • gain self-confidence, leadership skills and initiative
  • gain person recognition
  • have a more interesting and active 4-H project
  • develop public speaking skills

WHY ARE PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS IMPORTANT?
Giving presentations helps develop many life skills including the ability to speak in front of a group, organize ideas, and create and use graphics to support the spoken word. 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 the
    ability to accept feedback
  • Expanding skills for planning, preparation and
    performance

Every club and project group should devote time to presentations. Presentations by 4-H members should be a vital part of every 4-H club program. A desirable goal for each 4-H club is to have every member give at least one presentation during the year.
