Public Speaking Opportunities
Fairfax County 4-H offers plenty of opportunities for 4-H'ers to practice their public speaking skills and show off what they know. 4-H'ers are encouraged to give speeches or presentations at club meetings throughout the year. Then, in February or March, 4-H'ers have an opportunity to come together with other 4-H'ers throughout the county to compete in Contest Day. At Contest Day 4-H'ers can compete in public speaking, presentations, extemporaneous speech, Share the Fun (talent), and fashion revue in a supportive environment. Participants will receive feedback and ribbons based on their performance. Participants of the county contest are eligible to compete at the district contest in April. Senior 4-H'ers can then compete in the state contest at 4-H Congress in June.
We generally offer a public speaking workshop in February, if you are interested in receiving information about this opportunity, please provide your contact information here.
