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 1, 2019 at 5:30 pm. The Gonzales and Lockwood 4-H clubs will be hosting the event.
The 4-H Presentation Manual was revised in October 2016 with slight updates. This current and correct version can be found at http://4h.ucanr.edu/files/2193.pdf This manual may be downloaded and/or printed from the California 4-H website. 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. The primary 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 seal). Everyone participating will receive comment sheets from the judges to help them improve their presentation skills.
Registration for County Presentation Night for presenters is now an online registration!
This must be completed by February 12th, 2019.
All clubs are to provide Adult and Junior evaluators (judges) through the online registration as well as room monitors and room runners:
