Virtual Regional Presentation's Day Procedure

Two-hour time slots available on select days from April 10 to April 24.

After qualifying with a blue or gold award at a County 4-H Presentation Day (either in-person or virtual), youth may register to present at Regional Presentation Day during a 2-hour time block offered between April  10 – April 24. Time blocks are first-come, first-served.

Procedures:

After registering, youth presenters will receive a confirmation for their time block with a zoom.us meeting link.

During their scheduled time block, youth will log on with a computer/tablet or smart phone and present in front of a camera/webcam. They may use poster boards and props (if the category permits these) or using digital slides by “sharing my screen.” All requirements from the 4-H Presentation Manual - Revised January 2021 apply.

Evaluators will enter their scores and comments digitally, which will be sent to the “tally room.” Evaluations forms will be emailed to presenters along with their placing.

Award certificates and pins will be sent to County offices when State Presentation Awards are mailed out before June 30.
