4-H is the youth development education program of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. 4-H is the largest youth organization in the world! Any youth ages 5-18 can participate in “learn by doing” projects. There are a number of ways for youth to participate in 4-H including club programming, school enrichment programs, camps, creating individual projects, and many other activities.

4-H youth can

  • develop leadership skills
  • participate in a community service project
  • learn about science, from animals to aerospace
  • travel to attend national youth events
  • learn many useful skills such as computers, managing money, sewing, cooking, animal care, or starting a business

State 4-H Public Speaking TournamentState PST 2018

The 4-H State Public Speaking Tournament was held on April 7th at the University of Maine Orono. This years event was highly attended with more participating youth then ever before! Youth who qualified at the county level were invited to compete at the state level. Presentations took place simultaneously in four different rooms, followed by social time, while attendees awaited the completion of judging. We closed the afternoon with an awards ceremony to recognize our talented presenters, dedicated leaders, parents and volunteers.
Of the 55 youth presenting from around the state three were from Hancock County. Congratulations to Mckenzie E., Margaret R.G. and Zoe S. for their participation in this event and representing Hancock County. All three received blue ribbons! (Mikaila L. from Washington County is also pictured)
