4-H Presentations are a huge part of North Carolina 4-H. It is one of the most successful way to help a young person learn how to do a public speech. It focuses on members teaching others what they know about a particular project/subject matter. They are sometimes called demonstrations or illustrated talk or a formal speech. This program is for virtual programming. With creativity we can support your classroom as restrictions are ever changing. We look forward to working with you to encourage Lee County Youth to be their best selves.
