Six 4-H youth participated in the 2017 4-H Presentation Contest held June 29th, 2017, at the Phelps County Ag Center.
The 4-H Presentation Contest helps youth develop skills for communicating. Through the contest, youth have an opportunity to teach others about the skills they have learned in 4-H by delivering a “show and tell” presentation. Presentations relate to how 4-H youth are learning about 4-H science, agriculture literacy, career development/college readiness, citizenship/leadership, or healthy living, through their 4-H experiences or projects. Tonya McCroden, of Minden, served as the judge. Ribbon placings were as follows.
