Field Day

What is Presentation/Field Day?

Public speaking skills are ranked number one among the desired skill sets of professionals. Every 4-H member is encouraged to give a presentation each year. A 4-H presentation can be a demonstration, include audio-visual aids, and involve problem solving. Through their presentations, youth learn to research a subject, organize their ideas into a logical order and practice public speaking skills.

Impromptu Speech Contest

Impromptu speaking involves speeches that the speaker has developed
themselves at Presentation Day within a three-minute preparation
time. One at a time, the speakers will randomly draw a piece of paper
with a topic on it. The topics will be developed from the preannounced categories outlined here. From the time that the speaker is
given the topic, they will have three minutes to prepare a speech.
Please refer to the Impromptu Speech category description on page 17 of the State 4-H Presentation Manual, HERE.

Interview Contest

The Interview Contest is a popular event that gives 4-H members an opportunity to practice the real-life skills needed to apply for a job. Participants prepare a resumé and cover letter for a job they choose from the 2019 Interview Contest Job Descriptions. Judges evaluate their performance during a mock interview and give constructive feedback using a standard evaluation rubric.
