The 2020 Maine 4-H Public Speaking Tournament went virtual! It was held as a live, virtual event delivered on Saturday, April 25 at 3 p.m. Youth delivered their presentations to a panel of judges and a small audience of their peers. These presentations were open only to participants, judges, and the audience.
Family, friends, and the general public supported youth by joining us for the Awards Ceremony! The Awards Ceremony was streamed live, online, starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25. Viewers tuned in to watch a welcome message from University of Maine Cooperative Extension Dean and 4-H Alumna, Dr. Hannah Carter. We also streamed a photo slideshow of the virtual presentations as well as announcing awards foreach participant. There were multiple ways to join the live stream including Zoom, Facebook Live, and YouTube. We encouraged you to invite anyone you’d like — there was no limit on attendees!
