August 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a two-session workshop where 4-H youth cloverbuds through senior members can learn about public speaking. We will go over what public speaking is, why and when we use it, how public speaking helps youth share ideas and build confidence, and ultimately how to build your own 4-H public speaking presentation. In the second session, youth will present through ZOOM their public speaking presentations and will peer-review each other, giving a chance to both present and provide constructive criticism for their peers to strengthen their presentation skills. This workshop is open for all 4-Hers regardless of age or public speaking experience, however, it is going to be directed most as an introduction to public speaking for beginners. Register by Aug. 11.
All ages; enrolled Maine 4-Hers only; maximum 15 participants, participants must attend both sessions.
This event will be held twice — once on Aug. 18 and the other, and final, on Aug. 20.
