How to Make a Successful 4-H Presentation

Good presentation skills are essential for future leaders. Being active in 4-H is a great way to learn this life skill. You can practice these skills by making presentations at your club meetings and at County Day. From the County level, you can advance to District, State, and National competition.

How do you make a good presentation? There are a few components to a good presentation. I think having a topic that is of interest to you is certainly important. If you are not interested, then your audience will not be either. Also, make sure you are having fun.

For more presentation pointers have a look at the two instructional youtube videos below. Make notes during the videos of key points for a succesfull presentation. Also, have a look at the North Carolina 4-H presentation website for guidelines (http://www.nc4h.org/nc4h-publications/presentations).
