What is a 4-H Presentation? 

A presentation is a method used to communicate an idea by showing and/or telling. It can be a demonstration or a talk that uses posters and other visual aids. A 4-H Presentation helps you learn to research a subject, organize ideas in a logical order, be a teacher and practice public speaking skills. Placer County 4-H Presentation day is open to all 4-H members, and will be patterned after the format for the 4-H Regional and State Presentation Days. Click here for the State "California 4-H Presentation Manual Version 2016". Community Club Leaders and Presentation Project Leaders will have a copy. Additional copies can be obtained at the 4-H office.

To have a successful presentation it must contain the following:

  • An introduction—it should briefly cover what is to be shown or told.
  • A body—it should illustrate the subject logically and clearly.
  • A summary—it should reiterate briefly what has been said so that the audience takes away the main idea.
  • Don’t forget the original and catchy title, this will set the stage for your presentation!
  • Most of all...Enjoy Yourself!
