The 2021 4-H Public Speaking Tournament will take place virtually over the weekend of April 16 – 18, 2021. In the absence of local club and county tournaments this year, there will be ample support for youth preceding the tournament in the form of workshops and focused practice opportunities. These workshops are open to all youth who wish to practice their public speaking skills and those who wish to qualify for the state tournament. If you are interested in participating in the Maine 4-H Public Speaking Program and need assistance in any way, please contact us to discuss your needs. We are committed to making 4-H programs accessible to all youth, regardless of internet or technology access.
Details for the workshops and tournaments are still being organized, check back for regular updates on registration, tournament and awards details, and more!
- In order to qualify for the State Public Speaking Tournament, youth must attend two workshops and one practice session. If youth are unable to attend the scheduled workshops, contact Emily Mott, firstname.lastname@example.org for qualifier alternatives.
