4-Hers kept things lively by engaging the judges with a variety of interesting topics. A 4-Her standing at a podium, presenting or speaking before a group or audience is an important life skill to develop. Effective communication and public speaking skills are vital to tomorrow’s leaders. Cloverbuds, ages 5-7, can start with something as simple as leading the pledge or reciting a poem. Seniors are required to do a 5-7 minute speech.

This year think about how your club can encourage others in the community to become a 4-H member. This is your opportunity to show your community all of the fun, exciting, and meaningful programs 4-H’ers take part in.
Window Displays: Clubs are encouraged to design a window display that will be placed in the community. Great locations include grocery stores, doctor’s offices, pet supply stores, local businesses, etc. Put your creativity to use and design an eye catching display that will spark public interest in 4-H. The below picture represents what a display should be:
Banners: Individual members of 4‐H clubs are encouraged to design and display a 4‐H banner in the community during National 4‐H Week.
