About

Youth members in 4-H often participate in opportunities for public speaking and demonstrations. These provide valuable experiences to learn about and practice expressing themselves, sharing their sparks and passions with others, and developing leadership skills.

Resources

  • Public speaking includes many types of presentations that youth may do in front of another group of people. The size of the audience doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the youth share information they know about in a way that helps others understand it. This may involve researching a topic, planning how to present it in an organized way, and/or delivering the information through words, graphics, or other visual aids.
  • Demonstrations are a form of public speaking that are often used in 4-H. Demonstrations always combine speaking and visual aids and generally show—or demonstrate—a skill, an activity, or a concept.
