Adams County holds 4-H Speech and Demonstration Contest

Adams County 4-H members were excited to have the opportunity to present their prepared presentations, Saturday, April 30 at the Adams County Riverdale Regional Park and Fairgrounds.

Audience members made up of nervous parents, grandparents, leaders and others watched with pride, knowing that 4-H members giving demonstrations and talks are developing poise, originality, confidence, creativity, initiative, personality, accuracy in knowledge of subject and the ability to think, speak and act in the presence of others, all qualities that will benefit them in the future. A successful talk or demonstration helps 4-H members grow personally and it strengthens their self-confidence.
