4-H presentations are a vital part of the 4-H program! Every 4-H member can profit in some way from preparing and presenting a presentation. 4-H’ers who have participated in 4-H presentations often recall that their experiences built communication skills, public speaking skills, poise, confidence, organizational skills, research skills, and thought expression. These too can be your experiences by participating in 4-H presentations!

County Activity Day 2023

Henderson County Activity Day is the first level of the three-tier 4-H presentations competition (four-tier for poultry and horse categories). County Activity Day is scheduled on Saturday, May 13. (Following COVID-19 guidelines may come as we approach the date). We are excited for presentations to provide another great learning experience for our 4-H’ers!
