Public Speaking and Presentations

Public Speaking and Presentation projects are a great way to practice public speaking skills!

One must know how to ask for things, how to explain things, and how to speak persuasively enough to win the active support of others. Resourcefulness and adaptability in speech may be regarded as essential to success in every occupation.

Many 4-Hers also participate in Public Presentations! Check with your local Extension Office on how you can participate in Public Presentations!
