It is now the time to start preparing for our county Presentation/Favorite Foods Day. This is scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the Grace Community Church.
Presentation Day activities offer the member the opportunity to develop communication skills. Demonstrations, illustrated talks, prepared speeches, impromptu speeches, and interpretive reading are a few ways 4-H teaches communication skills. Presentations are recommended to be related to 4-H project or activity.School projects can not be presented if going on further than County Presentation Day. Posters are still a county category, but this category does not go on to Regional or State 4-H Presentation Days. For more information on categories check out the revised 2016 Presentation Manual at http://4h.ucanr.edu/files/2193.pdf. Members can enter 2 presentations and one Favorite Foods.
4-H Creed competition is back this year. Memorize the 4-H Creed and possibly win a medal. There will be a separate entry form for this competition.
Remember, you could earn a gold medal for your presentation. Only gold medal winners at Presentation Day are eligible to go on to Regional Presentation Day set for April 1 in San Joaquin County. Primary members can also participate in County Presentation Day, but CANNOT receive judges’ awards or medals. Per the UC Primary Member Policy, competitive events/activities are not appropriate for five to eight-year-old members. Primary members must each receive the same award for participation.
