Communications information from the state website.

Communications is open to all members enrolled in 4-H.  It can be taken as a project or can be used in conjunction with any other project.


A presentation is a way to share information with others, to teach what you know or have learned. While there are many types of presentations, 4-H materials concentrate on these four: demonstrations, illustrated talks, public speeches, and impromptu speeches. Use the following resources to help you prepare your own presentation to give to your club, at school, in the community, or at a contest.

Educational Displays

An educational display is a visual presentation of information. Displays are exhibited on their own without the 4-H member present. A good display will catch the viewer’s attention, arouse interest, stimulate thought, and motivate the viewer to learn more about the subject.

You may exhibit a display at your county contest. Top displays may advance to the State Fair competition.
