Speech and Poster Contest

2019-2020 Theme – The Head H

The contest theme  is “The Head H.” The first “H” in 4H stands for Head; “Head to clearer thinking.” One of the key concepts in 4H is education; allowing youth the opportunity to learn new things through projects and programs. The Head H can also be described as problem solving, life skill development, responsibility, and using reason to make decisions. Here are some ideas to think about when forming your speech and poster idea…

  • What does the first H, representing the Head, mean to you?
  • How has 4-H encouraged you to use your Head?
  • How do you embody the Head H?

All 4-H members and families are invited to attend this activity. Be an active audience/member. Check out the great posters and listen to speeches. This annual county-wide program is open to all 4-H members. We hope that all 4-H members and Cloverbuds will seriously consider participating. It is a great opportunity for FUN and learning. Remember that Cloverbuds and 4-H members can participate in both the poster and public speaking contests.
