4-H Club Day results


One of the biggest life skills that 4-H teaches is talking in front of groups. 4-H Club Day is a chance for all ages of youth to perform in front of a judge and learn more about talking in front of groups of people.

The youngest members, Cloverbuds, can do Show and Tell. They have a few minutes to share about something they like. Since they are less than 7 years old, they are recognized for their participation, but not judged against each other.

Once a member reaches 7 years old, they have more options to pick from for public speaking events. These include reading a short story, sharing about a favorite project, doing a demonstration or illustrated talk. We also celebrate talents in music. Members may sing a solo or play an instrument. They may also partner with other members and for duets and ensembles.

The final group of events takes several members or even the whole club. Clubs can choose what they would like to do. These club events include a Model Meeting where the club shows how well they can run a meeting. Teams of four to five members can also enter in Gavel Games. This is a chance to handle the business part of the meeting in a quickened pace. The final group event is a skit. The two this year included most of the members from the club. These results represent years of knowledge gained by some members and a first attempt by others.
