4-H News Notes
4-H Presentation planning season begins!
December 1, 2015
Dear 4-H Community,
The Monterey County Presentation Night is considered one of the most important events of the year for our local 4-H members. The planning and practicing begins now to develop 4-H public speaking skills that will last a lifetime.
Once again, the county-wide event will be held at La Gloria School in Gonzales on Friday, March 4, 2016 at 6:00 pm. Gonzales 4-H and Lockwood 4-H will be hosting the event.
The REVISED 4-H Presentation Manual may be downloaded and/or printed from the California 4-H website http://4h.ucanr.edu/files/2193.pdf. You will find all 10 styles of presentations that can be given along with checklists, tips, ideas and rules.
Members are strongly encouraged to relate the presentation to their current 4-H project work or 4-H activities. All members from 5-19 years can participate in Presentation Night. Members ages 5- 8 will receive participation certificates only.
Members 9 years and up are judged on their presentation using the Danish System of Judging (Gold, Blue and Red). Everyone participating will receive comment sheets from the judges to help them improve their presentation skills.
Attached is the registration form for County Presentation Night for presenters and a flyer about the event. Please return to the 4-H Office by Tuesday, February 9, 2016 by 5pm.
Please encourage your 4-H member to be active in this long standing 4-H tradition of building speaking skills, overcoming challenges and being active in their 4-H work.
