Our Trio Event Day is open to all 4-H members. You do not need to be in a Public Speaking project to participate. You can even give a presentation with a friend, which is called a team. Primary members may enter the county level only. Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors may advance to the Regional level with a gold or blue award at county level. Regional gold or blue awards may advance to State Presentation Day.

You are allowed to give 3 prepared presentations, please fill out this form for each of the presentations you plan to do.  

If you are in a team or group, only one person needs to fill out the form.  Please be sure to list all team members in the given area.
