Presentation Day Details
Every 4-H member is encouraged to give a presentation each year.
4-H members practice by giving talks to project groups and at community club meetings, sharing information about the skills they learned in a project, and observing other people giving presentations.
Each county holds a Presentation Day, where winners advance to the Area competition. Winners from the Area competitions compete at the State Presentation Day, (June 2, 2018) which is held at U.C. Davis (West Quad) State Field Day. Youth compete by age group: junior, intermediate, and senior.
All presentations are done in the format outlined in the 4-H Presentation Manual. Contra Costa County uses the presentation format the manual along with the evaluation rubrics and scoring key.
