This year, the EBCI Cooperative Extension office is the lead coordinator on the yearly event that 4-H holds called District Activity Day. This is an event where youth age 9-18 prepares a public presentation on a topic of interest to them. This is an excellent opportunity for youth to work on public speaking skills in a friendly supportive environment.
Heather James will be holding a presentation workshop on Tuesday, May 29 from 10am -12pm at the EBCI Cooperative Extension office, for all youth interested in participating. During this time, she will review requirements for participation, assist youth in determining their topic, and share examples of prior presentations. Parents should attend with their child.
The district activity day is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19 at Cullowhee Valley School in Cullowhee.
If you have not been involved in 4-H before, it is not a problem. 4-H paperwork will be available on site. Info: Heather James, 4-H Agent, 554-6932 or email@example.com.
